Local app to drive business at ‘mom and pop’ stores in Henderson

HENDERSON, KY (WFIE) -

Good news for local foodies and shoppers in Henderson. 

There's now a way you can find "mom and pop" businesses in the city.

It's a free app called LookLocal.  It finds local merchants closest to where the user is - regardless of whether they're at home or on the road. 

Categories include "Shop, Eat, Stay, Services and Play."

It's catching on nationwide.  The app already has more than 23,000 listings. 

And it's now taking notice in Henderson.

"Having that app brings people downtown that aren't aware of what's down here,” says Nancy McCarnan, Sidewalk Cafe Co-Owner.  “By getting on the app, they get to see all the options. It's a great idea for the younger generation because that's how they communicate."

Inclusion in LookLocal is free and automatic for independent brick and mortar merchants who sign up as Supports on The350Project.net
