Shop More Local is a not-for-profit initiative promoting and supporting locally-owned, independent businesses.

We’re bringing a sustainable focus to local shopping in the Lowcountry. We’re powered by the team at irmadoesmarketing.com and created by the CEO of Frey Media, the publisher of Hilton Head Monthly, Bluffton Monthly, Fork & Fun, Hilton Head Island Vacation Guide, and more.

According to a recent survey by the American Independent Business Alliance of 3000 business owners, independent businesses in communities with a long-term “buy local and independent campaign” reported average revenue growth of 7.4 percent, nearly double the 4.2 percent increase for independent businesses not served by such efforts.
