Tell Us About a Local Business

Own a brick-and-mortar business? Let’s get your independently owned business on KCSourceLink’s Shop Local map.

KCSourceLink’s Shop Local map features local “Main Street” businesses—those brick-and-mortar companies that serve our region’s growing population and define our cultural character. Think of your local dry cleaner, coffee shop owner, restaurateur or graphic design boutique. This Shop Local page was established as a resource to help promote this specific segment of Kansas City entrepreneurs.

To qualify for a listing, you must be an official representative of your company and your business must meet all the requirements below:
  • Be independently owned (i.e., not a franchise)
  • Sell goods or services outside of the home and/or web
  • Have physical location – a brick-and-mortar place that customers can visit during specified hours
Tell people you’re on the map! Once your listing is live, share it on your favorite social media channel with #ShopLocalKC.

Don’t qualify for the Shop Local map? Work out of your home? Selling goods only online? The Shop Local map isn’t for you—and that’s okay. We have plenty of resources and promotions ready to help you grow your business.
