With record numbers of people voting across the USA the whole world is witnessing how every vote counts. Three years ago we started our Independent “Shop Hall of Fame” to celebrate and shine a spotlight on the best shops around the world. So while we count the votes for the 2020 Best Shops list we’re taking a look back at our 2019 Best Shops. Now more than ever it’s so important to support independent shops. Shops that preserve the character, community and vibrancy of our villages, towns and cities. So shop and buy local, follow and share on social media, and lastly nominate your favorite shops for 2020 Best Shops. Because we know every vote counts.
