Shopping local just became easier. Developed by Calgary-based MQLabs, SokoLocal helps users find local products and even compare prices on one easy-to-use search platform. The goal is to make online shopping easier for consumers and help support local companies and their products. All of the purchase price goes directly to the local vendor supplying the product. To further help support small businesses, search results give priority to the smaller businesses in SokoLocal’s search engine. It helps increase their visibility and encourages users to shop from smaller companies instead of major retail chains. As a ripple effect, local support helps open up new job and community opportunities.
