The Local Store: Locally-designed and handmade goods

Hard work is how many of us in the Chippewa Valley define ourselves. But supporting the hard work of others is just as important. We collaborated with some of our favorite local makers for this short video about the store and the locally-designed and handmade gifts we offer this holiday season. Expect to hear more about these makers in the coming months through even more video. Thanks so much to Lucy's Soap, Hello Adorn, Eau Claire Woodworks, and Woodworth's Fine Toffee. We love working with you and so many other talented makers across the valley and Wisconsin.

Are all of your products locally made?
A lot of them, yes! Some product our staff designs and creates ourselves. Some are created by any number of amazing local makers.

Whenever possible the products throughout the store are sourced as close to our store as possible whether that's from the Chippewa Valley, the state of Wisconsin, the Midwest, or the good ol’ US of A.

But in addition to featuring products made near this place, we also have some products that simply evoke a sense of this place. Sometimes we’ll love a product or idea so much and discover we can’t get it or anything like it locally. In those cases we may sometimes look outside our borders to bring people products they love.

But know that the spirit of The Local Store is always local first whenever possible, and we achieve a very high rate of success on that goal!
