Over the past year local businesses have been adapting their strategy to keep their business going and Cochise County adapted along with them. We eat take out more frequently, order our groceries and more for pick-up or delivery directly to our home. We’ve also been shopping online even more than before from sites that can deliver what we desire literally overnight at times. But this change in habit for instant gratification can hurt our local economy and the small businesses that helped build our communities.
The Herald/Review Media team has worked hard to develop a local e-commerce website specifically for Cochise County businesses to sell their products and services. Now you can shop 24/7 online at your favorite local business participating on loveshoplocalaz.com. This also allows the business to have an opportunity to sell their goods anywhere in the world if desired.
Some of the businesses offer shipping services, some offer delivery and many offer pick-up at their store. This is their way to compete for your dollars with the larger online shopping sites. Herald/Review Media is here to help our local businesses navigate through the next steps to keep their business thriving by sharing their products and services with the largest audience in Cochise County
As a consumer, you can find unique products and services at loveshoplocalaz.com and feel good about keeping your dollars local. Small business owners in Cochise County support local nonprofits, sponsor youth sports, donate their products, services and time for fundraising events and many are veteran owned as well.
We invite you to start shopping now at loveshoplocalaz.com and keep your dollars local!
