Shop Small

It starts with an entrepreneur’s dream to open a shop in Kenosha and then becomes so much more. 

Small, locally-owned shops help distinguish Kenosha from other communities. They can be found throughout the Kenosha Area – including Downtown. Some have been here for generations.

These shops provide an exceptional customer experience for you, the customer. You’ll enjoy a unique selection of hand-picked products and offerings, as well as personalized service and attention from staff. We hear time and time again how friendly Kenosha is!

Apparel, home décor, flowers, plants, family games, pet products, Kenosha souvenirs, packaged Kenosha brews, natural health products, jewelry, specialty food items, illustrated novels and coloring books created locally, antiques, spirited gifts, books, and much more can be purchased in our community. Art galleries, paint-your-own-art studios, and museum gift shops are more places to look for unique gifts.  

These local businesses provide jobs; support area school, community, and charity events; and contribute to the local economy. While different products and different histories may come out of each shop, all are owned by passionate individuals. They cherish your business as this is their livelihood. When a global health pandemic hit, they creatively adapted. Online stores along with shipping, delivery, and curbside pickup services were added.

It starts with a dream … and soon that dream weaves its way into the fabric of a community. This is what shopping small is all about.

Shop Local, Dine Local, and Play Local!
