Charleston Business Guide was founded to embrace the “Shop Local” concept.

So, our site represents more than just a list of businesses, it is a call to action for businesses, residents, organizations, and tourists to support our local economy and charities.

When you shop at a local independently owned business:

68% of every dollar gets reinvested in the community.

Local chains, 43% reinvested.

“Forty percent of nonprofits (including 54 percent of arts and 36 percent of all other nonprofits) reported losing total revenue in 2020. On average, they lost 31 percent of total revenue and 7 percent of paid staff by year’s end.” Our goal is to help Charleston charities make up for lost revenue caused by the pandemic and related issues. With your help we can!

Help us celebrate Charleston communities and culture by shopping at locally owned businesses while also supporting Charleston charities dedicated to enriching the Low Country and its residents.  A True Win-Win.
