A Local Collective Nebraska Hosts Small Shop Online Virtual Market
Omaha – In an effort to support small businesses in Nebraska, A Local Collective will be hosting an online virtual market on Friday, April 24 – Sunday, April 26, 2020. The goal of A Local Collective is to create a one-stop shopping platform that focuses on bringing a variety of online small Nebraska-based businesses together in one place, while also making it easy for customers to shop the online market with one universal discount code valid this weekend only.
Due to the recent global situation due to Covid-19, many small businesses have been significantly impacted and have experienced a loss in sales. As a result, A Local Collective realized a need to move quickly and think creatively about how to market small businesses in Nebraska. This is where the idea of the Online Virtual Market came from.
By creating this online space, each individual business will be able to direct their customers to the website to shop their sale while also introducing their customers to other small shops in Nebraska. Small businesses are the core of our communities and it is vital we continue to support these brands and keep our shopping dollars local when possible.
A Local Collective’s online virtual market features clothing and accessory boutiques for men, women and children, dog accessories, hair products, artisan bags, jewelry, gift items and paper goods.
A Local Collective was established in 2018 by Katie Manganaro, owner of Little Mango Children’s Boutique and Jill Dudzinski, owner of Hello Ruby Women’s Boutique. Both women saw a need to collaborate with other local, small businesses to help promote each other and learn best business practices and new ideas. A Local Collective’s first event was a Small Shop Holiday Market located inside Westroads Mall in November & December 2018.
