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

What is CvilleShops?

CvilleShops is a one-stop shop to purchase gift cards from local businesses in Charlottesville, Albemarle, and surrounding counties. We like to think of it as Charlottesville’s digital shopping mall.

Why was CvilleShops built?

First and foremost, CvilleShops was built to help local business in Charlottesville, Albemarle, and surrounding areas impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic.

However, we wanted to provide something different by building an online store that will enable customers to purchase from multiple businesses at once instead of providing a simple list of links to their websites. In addition, and most importantly, all the businesses on CvilleShops receive 100% of the value of gift card purchases.

Who is behind CvilleShops?

Storyware, a web design and development company based in Charlottesville, donated its time and resources to build the site and we continue to maintain and market it.
