Celebrate Local
A newly re-opened store in Easton makes it easy to shop local and support Central Ohio-based businesses. Keep reading to learn more about it, and the fun things they have planned for this Spring and Summer.


Celebrate Local. That’s not only the name of this newly reopened store in Easton Town Center, it’s also their mission.


Located next to Panera Bread and across from Crate and Barrel, Celebrate Local had Grand Re-Opening weekend on March 1, 2013 at their new home. In September 2011 Celebrate Local began with 65 vendors, being an Easton Farmers Market under the umbrella of The Easton Community Foundation.


“Today, we now represent over 200 dedicated hard working Ohio small businesses under one roof,” says Heidi Maybruck, Founder and Co-Creator of Celebrate Local.


Celebrate Local gives small businesses an opportunity to raise their branding potential in hope to expand. They assist these businesses in all aspects of starting a business with training in social media, technical assistance, merchandising ideas and internal support from a caring and focused team of associates.


“It’s not just a retail store,” says Maybruck, “It’s a family!”


She says Celebrate Local is a family because of the overwhelming community enthusiasm for the stores mission to support local and the immense support of the Easton Community Foundation. While visiting you will find the best of Ohio produced handmade and artisan goods from locally sourced foods, clothing, salsas, wine, candy, baked goods, stationary, artisan jewelry, paintings and so much more, all from local artists.


“We built a beautiful Wine Wall to showcase Ohio Wineries from all over the State,” explains Maybruck.


They are currently planning a series of classes about wines and beers. On top of that, they are in the process of starting a class on how to start a business in Ohio.


“We are excited to roll out our power packed “Weekend Line Up” with our Columbus Local family of businesses to sample their products so our supporters can meet our amazing artisans, talented small Ohio wineries and Craft Beer producers face to face,” explains Maybruck.


In the next year or two, Celebrate Local would like to expand in Ohio to Cincinnati and Cleveland. They want to continue to be a great example and raise awareness on how supporting local helps a community at large.


“My business partner in this operation Lynn Stan and I are excited to continue to help entrepreneurs grow and be successful,” says Maybruck.
