VIRGINIA BEACH, Va. - If you want to support local businesses, but not sure exactly where they're located, there is now an app to help you shop local.

Locals Helping Locals have teamed up with Anchor’s Media to release an app to make it easier for the Hampton Roads community to find and support local businesses in the area.

The app is available in the Apple store and Google Play Store for free.

“I love supporting small, locally owned businesses and this app puts them all in one place. It’s hard to go on Google Maps and type in local businesses because you really won’t find what you’re looking for,” founder of the app, Conrad Brinkman said.

If any local business would like to participate in the group and app, email

Brinkman says the group has set a goal of 5,000 app downloads by January.
