What is Shop Small?
Shop Small is a nationwide movement dedicated to supporting and celebrating small businesses and the neighborhoods they’re a part of. The movement encourages consumers to Shop Small throughout the year. Here are some helpful tips to keep in mind when you Shop Small:
Shop Where You Live. Love Where You Shop. From grabbing your morning coffee to buying locally-grown produce at your farmers’ market to keeping up with your regular hair and beauty appointments – keep it local. When you make it a daily habit to Shop Small, not only will you be supporting the individual small businesses that make your neighborhood unique, but you'll be giving back to your local community and economy.
