We at Local Corners believe people want to support their local communities, talk to the person who grew their produce, learn what inspired the local artist to create their works, but most importantly they want to shake the hand of the person who created the product they purchased. The problem is the producer and customer can’t find each other.
The reasons are simple: Limited marketing and internet budgets and expensive brick and mortar store fronts. The small business can’t compete against the massive advertising dollars of large corporations. The result. One of a kind works, locally grown produce, stop at great ideas. Perform some internet searches on anything in your city. In all likelihood the results on the first page are dedicated to mass corporations.
If you can’t be found within your local community, how can anyone expect to grow? That’s where Local Corners comes into help.
