On October 8, 2016 Hurricane Matthew caused $10 billion in damage, and resulted in an unprecedented amount of damage on Hilton Head Island.

As a result, ShopMoreLocal.org (SML) was launched to help strengthen Hilton Head’s economy and social fabric by promoting and supporting locally-owned, independent businesses. Since our inception, SML has grown to over 300 partners and sponsors. And those numbers are growing every day.

SML partners and sponsors are far more than a transaction – they are a relationship, the personality and culture of our community. We all want to shop at places that actually mean something to us; where we feel welcome; places that know and love exactly what we love about Hilton Head!

Locally-owned businesses are the bond in every community.
