Shopikon is a shopping platform designed to help you discover the best local stores and products around the world.

As chain stores fill the streetscape the world over, this project is a celebration of the independent retailer. All stores featured on Shopikon have been hand-picked by our editors who have visited thousands of stores, and only the best of the bunch make it into our guide. We evaluate stores based on product selection, atmosphere, dedication to their specialty, and overall shopping experience, making sure that they are all worth your trip!

With Shopikon you can...

• Shop the best boutiques and local shops online!

• Find cool shops near you!

• Browse store photos and reviews, all based on interviews with the owners!

• Save and Share your favorite products and shops with your friends!

• Use our app to find shops on-the-go or create a custom shopping map for your next trip!
