[ARCHIVED] City of Homestead Launches Shop Homestead Online Directory to Promote Local Businesses

The City of Homestead is launching Shop Homestead, an online platform to help promote local businesses through a free online directory. The new internet local business directory allows Homestead businesses to create and update a business webpage for free, as residents and tourists can browse for retail and services in the local community.

By offering businesses the ability to display information such as new merchandise or services, current coupon offerings, social media links, available job openings and news, the City of Homestead can help make its business community more available and vibrant. The local business directory will offer Homestead businesses a free online platform and encourage residents and visitors to shop locally and support locally-owned businesses.

With Shop Homestead, consumers can go to one central location on the City website and search for local businesses. Shop Homestead provides businesses with an online platform to share and promote their business by offering a free site, if they do not have a website, or it can link to any existing business website. The platform is easy to use for both businesses creating a page and consumers browsing for services.

The application, which is an initiative of the City’s Economic Development Office, allows local business to be listed in an online space that is free from large companies that dominate online listings. Shop Homestead “puts our locally-owned businesses on an even playing field," says Gemma Torcivia, the City’s Economic Development Manager. The application will give local businesses a platform for a strong web presence and it will offer residents and visitors a central online directory to find businesses that contribute to the local economy.

All local businesses are encouraged to visit to create their Shop Homestead webpage for free. Residents and visitors are welcome to browse around the directory and find business or services they need by searching by category, exploring the map and browsing by name. For more information contact the Economic Development Office at: 305-224-4483
