Launched June 2011, Little Independent is a Chicago based online marketplace for sale items from independent retail stores.
My husband and I own a bike shop in Chicago and, like most independent retailers, we do the majority of our sales in store and at full price. Nevertheless, slow turning merchandise can be a problem for small stores like ours. Little Independent is the only website where brick and mortar retailers work together to enhance visibility online, access new customers and turn inventory more quickly. Think ebay or etsy but for Main St. style shops.
