When you live in a small town like Ashland, it should be a no-brainer to see why we would want to shop local.
Money spent locally stays local. It strengthens our local economy, helping our friends and neighbors thrive.
- It strengthens our community – local businesses donate back to local community groups.
- It supports our community’s values. Shops continue to stock things we care about, often from local or thoughtful sources.
- We reduce our impact on the environment.
- We keep Ashland unique and independent.
- We get better service.
Your local shops are here for YOU. In addition to helping you find what you are looking for, many are happy to special order items, offer free curbside pick up or delivery, and generally treat you right. After all, we are also your neighbor. And your kid’s friend’s mom. Or your plumber’s husband. We want you to get the best service possible.
So, the next time you feel like you can only get something from a big box store or Amazon, stop for a minute. Explore first whether you can get it locally, just as conveniently. If you can’t order it directly by using this website, make a quick call to one of our shops and see if we have it – or have something better – or can get it for you.
It’s our fervent hope that this site will begin to make shopping locally fun and easy! Let us know how we can help!
