The app makes it easy to support the diverse family, immigrant, women, veteran, disabled, and LGBTQ+ business owners and their employees who offer unique alternatives to chain and online mega stores. App users are rewarded with SMC Points for supporting local and independent businesses recovering from pandemic impacts. Help make our communities more vibrant, connected and inclusive!
