We believe in backing local

At Locate Local, we make it easier for socially and locally responsible shoppers to support local businesses when it matters the most.

The benefits of supporting local are clear and our everyday choices have impact. Investing in the local community, not only supports job creation, it also creates positive social change that extends beyond our own backyards.

How we started

Upon seeing the resilience of businesses during the COVID-19 pandemic and the communities that rallied around them, we felt there was no simple way for socially conscious shoppers to find and support locally owned businesses and shop based on their values.

That got us thinking… What if there was an easy-to-use platform that connected customers and businesses? With that, the idea for Locate Local was born.
