What is RelyLocal?

A healthy community depends on a healthy economy, and both completely depend on the local businesses in Libertyville, Mundelein & Vernon Hills Areas! There are a number of great studies out there that illustrate how shopping locally will stimulate the local economy.

Simply put, more money spent with local businesses stays here (about 68%), where much less money spent with national chains stays in the area (only about 14%), and money spent online... well... simply leaves. Forever.

"There is no power for change greater than a community discovering what it cares about."                                                                                                               -Margaret J. Wheatley

To us, supporting local businesses doesn't stop with the economy. It is all about creating a stable and vibrant community! Area Libertyville businesses create jobs, while offering diversity in the marketplace, with unique products and services not found in big-box stores or chain restaurants. Not to mention, these local business are owned by the very people who sponsor our youth sports, donate to our local charities, and volunteer for our community events - giving back to the community in countless ways. You rely on them, but can they rely on you?

RelyLocal is a Community Campaign

There are plenty of "local" online directories and various "shop local" movements sprouting up across the country. Unfortunately, most of the other vendors simply buy (or take) their data from giant databases full of national chains, while selling advertising to the highest bidder with the deepest pockets. Only RelyLocal is locally owned and operated by your neighbors who really understand what our businesses are up against. We understand the specific needs based in our market, and offer equitable and affordable pricing to all of our members.  RelyLocal isn't just a website - it is a co-operative community campaign to build our local economy and strengthen our community!
