Local Kansas City Businesses To Support

Sharing is caring!

I asked my Instagram followers for some local Kansas City businesses to support throughout the holiday season and wow — they delivered! This post includes tons of places around the city that you can visit for fun and unique gifts for your loved ones this year.

Small, locally-owned businesses always need our support, but due to all of the difficulties they have endured due to COVID, they need us now more than ever. I want to encourage everyone, including myself, to do at least part of their holiday shopping, if not the majority, at small, local businesses over the next few months. For all of my local readers, I hope this is helpful! Please share it with others so our local businesses can thrive this holiday season.

There were SO MANY suggestions and I am not familiar with all of them, so I did my best to categorize them and also include any additional information that people provided when they submitted their response!
