Shop and Support Local Businesses in Charlottesville, Albemarle and Surrounding Counties

What Is This

CvilleShops was created shortly after the COVID-19 pandemic began to impact the United States. In the beginning, the website’s sole purpose was to sell gift cards online for Charlottesville businesses who were economically devastated by the pandemic.

Now we work with others to support local businesses through digital advertising campaigns.

Why Was It Built
