Q: How do you choose the businesses that you support? Is there a way to recommend any?Asked by Samantha D., November 2020
We try to chose business that represent the city where they are made. Definitely small business or individuals who make the product whichever city we are exploring that month. I find a lot of the businesses at farmers markets in that city. We would love to hear of a business that you personally love. You can email us using the contact us button (we are not allowed to post an email address here). Thanks!
Q: Can we purchase multiple boxes to ship to different locations on a single order?Asked by Staci Q., October 2020
Yes definitely. We do a lot of corporate gifts, shipping to different addresses. Please email us and we can make a custom listing for you and we will handle the addresses/shipping from there!
Q: I'd love to send the Explore Local box as a gift, but only want a delivery every other month as opposed to every month. Is that possible?Asked by Katherine W., December 2020
During the holiday time (November + December) we have a "Holiday Special" box on our website, that is a six month subscription that is shipped every other month - January, March, May, July, September, November.
Q: Hi, Just ordered box as a Christmas gift. Will you time it so it arrives as close to Christmas as possible or will it ship right away? Ordered on 12/12 and I don’t want it to arrived a week before. Asked by Renee M., December 2020
Please email us directly and we can coordinate shipping for your particular order.
We gave this to my dad for Father's Day. He loves it. It is nice because it is hard to travel right now and it is nice for him to get mail/something to look forward too. He waited to open the first box until we were there to see it. I thought the items were really nice quality. My mom liked the information about the products and kept reading it while we took the items out of the box
Such a great gift. I love that this company supports small business and the way the box is packed looks so special - it really make a nice present.
My wife and I love getting this box in the mail. The items are well thought out. It is fun to look forward to. And I think a great value - the items are high quality and made from small business. I have even purchased more candy and salt directly from the manufacturers after getting in our monthly box
I got this for my parents for Christmas and they love it! Great way t check out new places during a pandemic when you can’t travel and it’s a great gift for retirees who have everything.
This was a really fun box! I got the Hawaii one. The notes about the small business sellers and facts about the area made it more special!
Love this box! One of my favorite things to do when I travel is check out local small businesses, and especially now that we're living in the Quaran-times, this brings that experience home to me. I've received six boxes so far, and it's definitely going to be a mainstay in my subscription box rotation.
I really do love this box. Exciting to see what "goodies" you will get from the next mystery U.S. city. Unfortunately, I have to stop subscription for now due to cash flow during this crazy time, but hopefully, will be back soon!
Really great gift! I gave this to my brother and my sister in law and they were very excited. They try to support local business and can’t travel now so I thought it would be perfect but it was better than I expected. Lots of items and a good selection of food verses products. I saw it when I went over to visit and tried some of the popcorn
Such a great gift. I love how they support small businesses (SO IMPORTANT). I have given this subscription boxes to quite a few friends for Christmas last year and plan to again this year
I gave my mom a subscription to this box and she loves it! She was impressed with the presentation and the high quality of products.
