Who says retail is dead? While it might (sadly) be bankruptcy season for big-box chains, let's not forget that independently-owned shops also need a boost during the pandemic and beyond. Enter Neighborhood, an online marketplace that launched in May as a way for shoppers to support their favorite local boutiques and discover new ones during the pandemic and beyond.
The platform was created by San Francisco-based Faire, an online platform for small business owners to shop and sell wholesale products from local and global makers. Neighborhood currently features over 100 stylish stores across Los Angeles, primarily in Brentwood, Burbank, Culver City, Downtown, Hollywood, West Hollywood, and Studio City. In addition to ordering for delivery, shoppers can select curbside pickup or next-day drop-off.
Want to visit Row DTLA without leaving the house? Galerie.LA, Dra, Omamimini, and Hightide are just a few Row tenants that are shoppable. You can also restock your closet at Bel Kazan, Hide & Seek Vintage, and Slone Vintage; and pick up gifts at Aklia's, Dustmuffin, The Give Store, Serendipity, and Spitfire Girl. Those looking to spruce up their abode or beauty cabinet can "swing by" Aldea Baby, Broome St. General Store, or Huset; pick up books and more from The Library Store; and get Zoom party supplies and stationery from Bonjour Fête and The Social Type; among many, many others.
Even better? All stores get 100% of their sales through October 1 — so get to shopping here.
