“The team at Shop Where I Live (SWIL) have been a dream to work with! The very concept that they were growing in their own community to solve the age old problem of “getting people to shop local” was one that we had always dreamed about but could never make a reality in our own community. When we learned about how their community-based website was allowing businesses, organizations and more to come together in one place to create not only a one-stop online shop for a community but also a one-stop info hub for communities as well …we knew this was a must-have for Ravenna and a GIANT benefit and opportunity for our Chamber Members!
The SWIL team has the best interest of the community in mind and they literally bend over backwards for each and every business that decides to be a part of our particular site- ravenna.shopwhereilive.com because they understand and are sensitive to the hardships and time constraints that come along with being a small business owner these days.
Long story short, we are extremely grateful for the entire team and we are filled with a renewed hope that we have finally found the right tool to aide in keeping more dollars in our community, provide more benefits to our Chamber members and attract new businesses to our community!”
“We identified e-commerce as a priority initiative, as e-commerce is one of bricks and mortar’s greatest competitors. We are excited to announce a partnership with Shop Where I Live.com that will help Marion’s small businesses to maintain an e-commerce platform together and take advantage of each other’s customer bases – there is power in numbers.”
“You really made everything easy. You listened to our needs and built a marketplace that was stylish, functional and professional, capturing exactly what we were seeking. There were very few adjustments required and when we had input, the Shop Where I Live team was quick and eager to help. The flexibility and dedication of your team allowed us to release the site before our goal date and the assistance you have provided area businesses and our organization have been a huge part of the program’s success.
You went beyond my expectations of researching the sales regulations in our state and being insightful as we explore ways of promoting it in our community. The level of detail your team commits to this site made our team feel nothing was overlooked or misrepresented. I am greatly impressed. Thank you, we value your expertise, attention to detail, and timeliness to our project!”

“With our website being tied to Shop Where I Live, we have increased our number of website views by 1800. You can’t get that kind of exposure with newspaper or radio, because these are actual views, not circulation! It’s as if customers peeked into our store window 1800 times!”
