About Us

Shop Noble animated logo created and donated by Midwest Film Factory Inc., a proud Noble County small business.

SHOPNoble is a free-to-use website and directory launched by Noble County Economic Development to help Noble County thrive by supporting locally owned small businesses.

SHOPNoble believes that by providing a platform that brings together locally owned and operated small businesses, including places to eat and drink, shop, or find services, more relationships will grow, businesses will grow stronger, and communities will thrive!

SHOPNoble is focused on three specific objectives:

  1. Provide a free online community for small businesses to communicate what they have to offer and when and where to get it;

  2. Provide small businesses a library of curated resources to help improve their sustainability and performance;

  3. Provide citizens and other businesses a free small business directory and a gift card option to shop local and boost the local economy. 

When you shop local, profits stay local. Local businesses make up eight of every 10 establishments ntities in Noble County and have a direct impact on community wealth, tax revenues, and quality of life.

Locally owned small businesses shape the very character of the community. When businesses find other businesses from which to buy products and services, they build win-win relationships that help both businesses succeed.

Buying local, investing in local business, has a direct impact on the flow of money locally. It means more jobs and better wages. Finding a slightly lower price online or out of town might save a little money today, but the lost opportunity to invest locally can have a much higher price down the road when local economies fail to thrive. When that happens, small towns become ghost towns.  

All Noble County-based small businesses (fewer than 25 employees) are invited to participate in this platform, at no charge!
