“Robert and Cherie Edilson and their team with Shopwhereilive.com (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 Robert, Cherie and their 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!”
Gena McPherson, Ravenna Chamber Director
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”
Jill Ackerman, President, Marion Chamber of Commerce

“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!”
