We are a small, growing company located on a real Main Street in Silicon Valley. We are dedicated to connecting Neighbors and Local Businesses online to help build real relationships between local business owners and their customers. To date, nearly 1,000,000 local businesses have joined MerchantCircle to get their business more exposure on the internet, simply and inexpensively.

To help Local Businesses get more customers online, we’ve developed local business social network where business owners can promote their business by uploading pictures, writing blogs, publicizing events, creating coupons and newsletters, and connecting with other merchants, all for free.

Local Shoppers are using the internet to find local deals more every day. In fact, Local Shoppers’ usage of online coupons has jumped more than 140% in the past year*. That’s why we’ve created the “MerchantCircle Neighbors” program, designed to put Neighbors in touch with Local Businesses and their owners. MerchantCircle N
