Goods from Shop Local Rhode Island

The online directory makes it easy for small businesses to promote goods and services


These days being a maker also means being a marketer, but not everyone has the bandwidth to promote a brand, establish an online platform, or even set up a table at a farmers market. This is where Shop Local Rhode Island comes in. The pandemic-born idea of Lori Giuttari’s marketing agency Visual Thrive is an online directory and marketplace of all things Ocean State. The site is searchable by neighborhood, zip code, and keywords. “More and more businesses are registering every day,” says Giuttari with glee. In addition to goods, find services categorized in a very Rhody way: by distance! “Our goal is to let RI businesses grow, and our hope is that you find everything you need – right here in Little Rhody.”
