2021 In with the New

2021 continued to be a challenging year for some small shops and businesses. Travel restrictions, lockdowns and an increase in online shopping were obstacles to the nature of local, brick & mortar shops, especially in urban cities. Sadly some of our favorite shops closed. Happily there are independent retail pioneers that opened new shops this year too.

Brick & mortar shops are the backbone of our neighborhoods, towns and cities. Knowledgable shopkeepers add community and character to their locations. This list honors some of the new shops that opened in 2021, and some brilliant ones that we will really miss.
