Stay Home, Shop Small: Get Handpicked Product Recommendations from Independent Businesses

We're all doing our part to curtail the impact of COVID-19. Teams across Shopify are immediately rolling out resources to help small businesses during these difficult times.

There are also ways that we, as a global community, can secure the futures of our local small businesses and help them shine. We have choices right now. To help you navigate this new reality and direct your dollars to shopping small, we’re handpicking products from independent businesses around the world.

Why now? As people avoid busy places, many independent businesses have made clever pivots to service their customers without the need to connect in-person. But some things don't change. We still need to eat. We’re bringing our fitness routines indoors. Our work-from-home setups could use an upgrade. Small businesses are stepping up to provide these staples for staying home and staying safe. 

Get on our list to receive regular product picks directly to your inbox—everything from pet treats to standing desks to indoor gardening supplies.
