Our Quick Pitch

LocalLux is the best smartphone app for hyper-local shopping! It puts quality, independent goods at your fingertips, that’s the “luxury” of it. More importantly, the app gives you the opportunity to purchase household items, clothes, and furniture from the carpenters, designers, and small manufacturers in your area. In many of cases, providing you with a better, quality product and superior customer service. All the while helping boost your economy. It's a win-win. That’s the LocalLux experience!

This is what you can expect from us when we come to town:

  • The who, what, when, and where of the local happenings
  • Access to every local, independent, producer and retailer we can get our hands on.
  • Outstanding customer service
  • Same day, next day delivery (where available)
  • Order tracking
  • Payment options
  • Experience kits (a bundling of complimentary goods to tickle one’s fancy)

And if that was not enough....

Look what buying local does for your economy, neighborhood, and community!

Traction & Accomplishments

LocalLux is currently in a very positive position for alpha release. We currently have 100 early adopters eagerly awaiting the launch of our initial MVP (Minimum Viable Product). We’re working very closely with our key advisors and customers to launch a sound product that delivers a great hyper-local shopping experience. Our team is pricing and researching supply and logistics costs for our launch market. We aim to align ourselves with quality producers so our Experience Kits are diverse and full of life.

How We're Different

For small businesses, the post-internet society is here. Our technological accomplishments as a global community have allowed us to reach across entire countries and vast oceans to do business at the speed of light; however, this comes at a cost. By supporting merchants globally, our own economy has suffered locally. Big e-retail companies have made it vastly effortless to shop for everything online. This ‘low-energy high-return’ measure has turned the hyper-local commerce world into a seldom visited experience. Our neighborhoods and means of local growth have taken a major blow. For the consumer, as our time at work has increased and our personal time has significantly decreased, it’s hard to find time to organize our lives. The mere act of planning can be exhausting. Every person deserves to get maximum value for their time, which is where LocalLux comes in.

Android & iOS7 Ready & Beyond

We're making it a priorty to make sure LocalLux services uses the latest in development technology. Giving the customer an unprecedented shopping experience never seen in local shopping before. Our mobile, desktop, and tablet products will offer speedy navigation, response, and delivery.
