There’s a new way to shop local in Grundy Center now: online.
Late last week, GC Chamber-Main Street announced the launch of a new, online shopping mall called “Shop Where I Live Grundy Center.”
The online mall gives local businesses. anew way to reach customers, and provides shoppers an easy way to shop from the convenience of their home, with in-store pick up, at-home shipping and even local delivery options available.
“[The online mall] espouses retailers to a wider audience and even people from out of town who maybe aren’t familiar with everything Grundy Center has to offer,” said GC Chamber-Main Street Director Lisa Bienfang. “It’s also great for people who can’t make it into the sore while they’re open because now you can shop these stores 24/7.”
Already, there are 11 businesses and organizations on the online mall, and Bienfang says the Chamber-Main Street group is hoping to add even more in the near future.
“We hope to grow and expand, and there’s a lot of opportunities with this,” Bienfang said. “Our goal is to use this as a tool to expose Grundy Center a as a community to wider audiences and show off our local businesses along with the community.”
The new online mall is now up and running, and visitors can check it out by going to: https://grundycenter.shopwhereilive.com/.
