Shop Northern Indiana

The COVID-19 pandemic changed our world. We watched local businesses struggle because they didn’t have an online presence and were having to pivot daily. Understanding the challenges many small businesses were facing and seeing our community want to support local businesses but not knowing how to best to do so, we decided to act.

We launched Shop Northern Indiana as a response to helping small businesses and our community connect. This was a project solely initiated and supported by Write Connections.


  • Launched a website for small businesses and the community to connect.
  • Created an use-friendly portal for local businesses to submit listings.
