Celebrating 10 Years of Success: Stella Mitchell's Journey as a Small Business in Lodi, California

Stella Mitchell, a small business based in Downtown Lodi, California, is celebrating their 10th anniversary! When owner Kelli first dreamed of starting Stella Mitchell, it was because she noticed that many of her friends and neighbors would drive to Sacramento or Roseville to shop for clothing and accessories. She saw an opportunity to provide a place for the Lodi community to shop locally, and was inspired to take action. Stella Mitchell was born.

Why We're So Passionate About Local Business

Supporting local businesses is crucial for the health and sustainability of a community. Not only do local businesses provide jobs and stimulate the local economy, they also help to preserve the unique character and culture of a place. Here are a few reasons why it's important to support your local businesses:

Local businesses create jobs: When you shop at a local business, you are supporting the employment of people in your community. Local businesses are often small and may not have the resources to hire as many people as larger corporations, so every purchase helps to create and sustain jobs for your neighbors.


Local businesses stimulate the local economy: When you shop at a local business, the money you spend stays in the community. Local businesses often source their products and services from other local businesses, creating a ripple effect that boosts the local economy. This is especially important for smaller communities that may not have as many economic opportunities.

Local businesses preserve the unique character of a community: Local businesses are often owned and operated by people who are deeply connected to the community. They often offer products and services that reflect the culture and values of the area, helping to preserve its unique character.


Local businesses are more sustainable: Local businesses are often more sustainable than larger corporations because they have a smaller carbon footprint. They often source their products locally, reducing the need for transportation and cutting down on emissions. Additionally, local businesses are more likely to use eco-friendly practices and support sustainable initiatives in their community.

As consumers we have so much power to change the world by just being careful what we buy. - Emma Watson

Overall, supporting local businesses is essential for the health and sustainability of a community. By choosing to shop at local businesses, you are supporting the employment of your neighbors, stimulating the local economy, preserving the unique character of your community, and helping to reduce your carbon footprint. So next time you need to make a purchase, consider supporting your local businesses and help to make your community a better place.
