Need diapers? Laundry detergent? Really, really soft sweatpants? Good news: You can buy all that and everything else you could possibly need from independently owned shops that need your business more than ever in the midst of the pandemic—and so many great shopping options are also Black-owned and operated. In fact, there are more than 2 million Black-owned businesses in the United States, from tech companies to toy companies.
As an organization and as individuals, we try to make good choices about where we spend our money all year round, and to do so in ways that support communities of color. So here are just a few of our favorite Black-owned spots for whatever you’re shopping for. (And just to note: For this list, we’ve picked places that offer online shopping. But there are so many local brick-and-mortar shops that could use your support, too—and now more than ever. Don’t forget to check out what’s curbside-pickup-able right in your neighborhood!)
