Shop Small, Shop Local

Where everybody knows your name, and they’re always glad you came!

Don’t you love it when you walk in a store and someone calls you by name and knows exactly what you will love? This is what makes independently-owned shops special. When you buy from local stores, significantly more of that money, your investment, stays in the community than dollars spent at chain stores. You will also find better customer service and quite often a more unique selection of goods. Below we highlight independently-owned stores and businesses. Study the shopping guide full of editor’s and buyer’s picks for gift ideas for Mother’s and Father’s Day, graduation gifts or something special for your home. You’ll see these amazing stores have incredible selections. Local is the new black!
