we love local

Welcome to The Shop Local Network

“When you buy from a Mom and Pop Business, you are not helping a CEO buy a third vacation home. You’re helping a little girl get dance lessons, a little boy get his team jersey, a mom or dad put food on the table, a family pay a mortgage, or a student pay for college. Our customers are how we support our families and we do not take that lightly. We value each and every one of you.”
Nick Bello, The Shop Local Network
