“Consumers are doing more product research on brand websites, search engines and social media. But this type of engagement was completely disconnected from inventory that’s down the street. Unlike restaurants, movie theaters or big box retailers, you couldn’t look online to see what’s at local stores. Locally set out to fix that seven years ago and make local inventory visible.” – Mike Massey, third generation owner of Massey’s Outfitters, who teamed with Ben Hirsch and Dirty Coast Founder Blake Haney to form a tech company called Locally that helps online shoppers find local inventory. The company now has more than 20 team members across the country and more than 400 global brand partners, including Patagonia, New Balance, Yeti and Crocs. Locally’s team works with roughly 10,000 global retailers to capture their inventory data and uses search engine optimization and e-commerce tactics to guide shoppers toward local pickup and delivery rather than having an item shipped.
