Shop Local Network creating a buzz!

BIG THINGS are happening for SMALL BUSINESSES in Noble County!

Locally-owned small businesses in Noble County, Indiana are now eligible to have a professional promotional video produced to market their products and services, valued at $1,000! The program is made possible by a $125,000 grant awarded to the Kendallville Chamber of Commerce from The Shop Local Network.

SHOPNoble welcomed Nick Bello from The Shop Local Network to Noble County in early July, shortly after the company awarded the grant, and learned that the opportunity to have a free video produced extends beyond current Kendallville Chamber members. In fact, the offer is open to all Noble County small businesses.

Beyond the video, The Shop Local Network also introduced an affordable way to promote businesses across the region through the I Shop Local App. Launched in 2014, the objective behind the mobile app is to provide a platform that can help ALL locally owned small businesses by keeping costs extremely low. No box stores are allowed to participate in this app, helping to create a true, local, small business "network". The app has performed so well it caught the attention of The Wall Street Journal!

As a result of the tremendous resources available and track record of The Shop Local Network, SHOPNoble decided to move away from Shop Loyal and Shop Mainstreet, companion platforms that were introduced in Noble County during the COVID-19 pandemic*.

The decision to transition to The Shop Local Network was based on the highly touted results that small business in other northern Indiana communities have seen, including Goshen, Warsaw, Nappanee, North Webster, and Syracuse.

To claim your free $1,000 gift certificate and schedule filming of your free promotional video, contact Kristen Johnson at (260) 347-1554 or by email at

Be sure to follow SHOPNoble on Facebook to see the debut of some of Noble County's small business videos coming soon!
