Small businesses are an integral piece to the communities they serve.  They offer a familiar face, a local product, jobs, and personalized service that are often lost with large corporations.  However, in this new age of e-commerce, your favorite neighborhood store can reach far beyond its community and the confines of its brick-and-mortar walls.  Achieving scalability for regional, national and even international distribution used to require resources only available to large national brands.
