Created out of Respect for Small Business

Our mission is to see neighborhoods filled with locally owned businesses meeting the needs of the community.

Why Shop Small?

In addition to creating a stronger sense of community and a healthier environment, shopping small is simply good economics! The fact is that when you spend your money with a locally owned and operated business, that money tends to stay within the community at a much higher rate than money spent with national chains.

That's me on the right alongside Jan Kelly, owner of Meritage. I grew up in Wisconsin, graduated from the University of Wisconsin-Madison, and have since lived in some amazing neighborhoods around the country. I was inspired to create Small Shops United with the simple idea that by better connecting consumers to neighborhood businesses, stronger communities will result. It's been my privilege to work with so many great small business owners to date, and together we're going to make every neighborhood a little better place.
