Spinnerz Internet Sweepstakes Café opens inNorthfield
January 30, 2011
The Nordonia area homes a large assortment of commerce. Local business has ebbed and swelled in the past few years, but 2011 welcomed many new faces in our community. Business growth offers us an opportunity to experience new things, or witness changes in the community. New business ventures create jobs in our area and hopefully, new products or services for us to enjoy.
One new business for 2011 is Spinnerz Internet Sweepstakes Café; it is nestled between Pepper’s and Wing Warehouse in NorthfieldVillage. Inside the café, there are many comfortable office chairs accompanying tables with large touch-screen computers, warm colored walls and décor, and artsy blue ceiling lights. A refreshment area and office occupy the center of the space. Customers are welcome to coffee, soda, and snacks.
Spinnerz’s manager, Stephanie Pieronek, has successfully nurtured a clean, non-drinking, hangout for locals since the opening in May. Spinnerz offers long distance calling cards, including international cards, for people who don’t have nationwide cell phone coverage. They also offer internet time, copying, faxing and other business services within. Some of their products come with free points to play casino-inspired games, and each outcome has a pre-determined ticket number which may result in more points.
Pieronek has worked in the hospitality industry since age 13, and says she loves interacting with people. Her heart is focused on the enriching the Nordonia area. Everyone working for Spinnerz is from the area. The extrovert also supports local businesses by using area restaurants and stores to cater the complimentary lunch and dinner meals at Spinnerz. The support of local businesses helps to strengthen our community and links us closer together.
When asked why she decided to open in this community, Pieronek stated that she grew up in the area and often found there wasn’t much to do after 11pm. Although Northfield has many bars, she found the night life lacking. Spinnerz is open everyday, but from Thursday at 8am they don’t close until 2am Monday morning. Spinnerz has a weekly cash drawing on Thursdays and on other nights they have given away prizes anywhere from Kindles to vacations. Pieronek takes pleasure in running the Northfield location and two others: in Bedford and Geneva-on-the-lake. In particular, Ms. Pieronek enjoys organizing new promotions, seeing networks of people expand before her, and maintaining relationships with her regulars.
So, we’ve gained a locally-operated place to conduct business services and have some fun! Spinnerz is one of many new business endeavors in the area. Any addition to industry helps sculpt our community’s identity. In future articles, we will continue meeting members of the new business influx.

When you shop local, you invest in your community, in your neighbors, and in yourselves. In this economic climate, the best return on investment is in local business. It is estimated that for every dollar you spend, twice as much will be reinvested in the community by a local store than a national store.
