Shop Well

This page is focused on small/local businesses with good practices, sustainability, and/or service. Each of the businesses listed below are ones I’ve personally had good experiences with. If I’ve written about the company specifically, I will also link out to the blog post. I plan to add to this list over time. In no particular order:

Note: I’m not currently including restaurants, though I may choose to add these in a separate list at a later date.

The following are larger businesses that still conduct themselves with local- and customer-focused practices. While they are larger, I would highly endorse them as wonderful companies to shop from.

  • Fleet Feet – primarily shoes, but other running and athletic gear, as well as classes, training groups, and events
  • REI Co-op – outdoor athletic gear, as well as classes and trips
  • HEB – groceries and more
  • Girlfriend Collective – recycled plastic athletic wear for a diverse range of bodies
  • B&H Photo – wide range of photography, videography, and audio gear
  • – a way to order books from a whole range of independent bookstores

I’m happy to take recommendations for small businesses online (or local businesses in the San Antonio area)! Not taking recommendations for businesses that work under a MLM model.
