Greater Cincinnati Shops and Boutiques You Can Support by Shopping Online

As people are practicing social distancing or self-quaratine during the unprecedented coronavirus pandemic, plenty of Greater Cincinnati shops are focusing on their digital offerings. Some have closed the doors of their brick-and-mortar storefronts for the time being, and some have not. Either way, if you aren't leaving the house to shop, you can still support these local boutiques with online purchases. If you are a boutique and your digital or pick-up options aren't on this list and you want to be added, email us: [email protected] or [email protected] This list will be updated as new info comes in.
