2020 has been a unique experience for everyone. In this local shopping guide, we feature businesses that have adapted to people’s needs for social distancing and safe shopping. Some offer delivery, curbside pick up, custom shopping experiences, and more. We love our local businesses in Louisville!

If you’re making a list and checking it twice, be sure to support local businesses this year. I always start my Christmas shopping considering the great local gift options all over town.

Here are some really great options for our local shopping guide:

Art Eatables is perfect for our local shopping guide. Decadent treats, if you have a bourbon-lover to buy for, these are perfect. And, for 2020, they have a new pop-up shop in Plainview Village so more people can easily pick up gifts. Monday – Saturday 11am – 5:30pm.

Our holidays would not be the same without goodies from Muth’s Candy. For the 2020 holiday season, they are exclusively running curb-side pickup. You have to get the dark chocolate covered modjeskas! Just give them a call or order online. Their bourbon balls are also our favorite. Ask about their choices for chocolate pops too, we get those for stocking stuffers and they have different themed holiday characters or snow flakes in dark and milk chocolates.
