The ‘Amazon’ of Wisconsin Mom & Pop Shops: Website Allows Users to Shop at 650+ Small Businesses

The website is a hub for more than 650 Wisconsin-based, independent businesses and counting. Started in 2020, the site is an example of a pandemic pivot that quickly became popular, and eventually, permanent.

On it, you’ll find locally-owned small businesses that sell everything from fine art and furniture to specialty foods, wine, clothes, books, and games. Users can filter results by:

  • Community (where they’re located)
  • Category (what they sell)
  • Ordering Options (curbside pickup v. delivery/shipping)
  • Ownership (BIPOC, woman-owned, etc.) has added more than 250 businesses to its database in just the past year and continues to expand. Anyone can submit an independently-owned, Wisconsin-based business.

The website was spearheaded by the Wisconsin Economic Development Corporation as a way to keep small businesses afloat during the pandemic.
