Our Vision Is To Digitally Connect Tourists And Shoppers To Local Shops To Drive Sales In Real Life

Merchant Solution

Merchants love the Storefront they can set up and control from their Admin Panel, but demands no time to run or manage.

We assist shop owners with Keyword Magic, a filing system that tells Shoppers what each Shop has.

Connecting Shoppers

Keywords make items that are locally available to a Shopper discoverable at, where all Storefronts are hosted.

Shoppers just type in what they are looking for like they do at or

But instead of e-commerce results and corporate SEO hits at Google, at Shoppers provides a list of every local merchant that has what they are looking for, nearest first.

Rewiring The Economy For Local Business

48% of each purchase using is recirculated locally, compared to less than 14% of purchases at national big box stores. 100% of sales via are at local, independent businesses.

Quotes From Media


“Local merchants are the people online shoppers have been waiting for. They have no skin in the data mining game, so they aren’t going to invade your privacy. Merchants are community builders by trade, community leaders by default.”

 – Can Local Beauty Brands Reject E-Commerce Giants?,” Beauty Business Journal, November 30, 2021


“A small percentage of local merchants who understand how to use these complex systems can survive and even thrive,” but even for those businesses that do successfully work the system, “these tools still require an excessive amount of time, the most scarce resource of the local merchant.”

“Can Local Beauty Brands Reject E-Commerce Giants?,” Beauty Business Journal, November 30, 2021


“Tobin Brogunier fell in love with small-town mom-and-pop shops at age 15 when he worked for his local comic shop in Bangor, Maine. Fast forward a decade or so and Brogunier has watched shopping transform from something built on relationships and personal service to a business of clicks and online forms.”

– “More Than a Click: Entrepreneur Tests Platform to Promote Local Shopping,” Daily Yonder Journal, February 4, 2022


“I encourage local merchants to look at how they fit into a future people want. Virtual Storefronts sees a very different vision of the future that fulfills the needs of the online user. We look at what is currently a scarcity online and make those things abundant…Online is transactional, cold and efficient. Merchants are relational and human.”
