6 Small Businesses We Love At Vital Proteins®

In honor of Small Business Saturday, we asked our team to nominate six of their favorite independently owned retailers that carry Vital Proteins®' collagen products. Not only is collagen the gift that keeps on giving (hello, healthy hair, skin, nails and joints!**), but shopping small is an easy way to show support during a year that’s proven to be difficult for small businesses. 

The COVID-19 pandemic has affected businesses everywhere – with independently owned and operated stores getting hit the hardest. Shopping small during the holiday season (and beyond) helps to give back to these small businesses and their communities. And hey, you might even find your new favorite place to shop year-round in the process! 

So, cozy up with your favorite collagen latte and keep scrolling to learn more about what makes these shops so great. Happy shopping (small)!

While Tom has only been in business a year, it's people like him that make going into supplement stores worthwhile."
