Looking for a gift for a friend, client, or colleague? Go local with our 3 curated celebration boxes.

With Coimatan, our goal is to easily connect small businesses and the community.

The land of 10,000 lakes is our home. And the 464,946 small businesses in Minnesota are integral to our community. Each neighborhood shop – from the art gallery to the framing company and the dry cleaning service, from the graphic design studio to the fitness center – plays an important part in our everyday lives.

Coimatan easily connects small businesses with the Minnesotan community because we believe offline and online shopping should be as easy as 1-2-3 when shopping and supporting local.


Hunt & Gather at 50th and Xerxes has the most incredible collection of vintage sign letters, which they lent for this photo!

BIPOC Small Business Directory

Celebrating diverse voices makes for a vibrant and welcoming community. The BIPOC Small Business Directory is a curated resource to showcase BIPOC businesses across Minnesota in an easy, engaging way.

Our guide makes it easy to search for BIPOC-owned brick and mortar retail shops as well as culinary businesses - see below. 

This list has been compiled thanks to resources shared by: MSP Magazine, Kare 11, Yelp Twin Cities, the Black Directory, Minneapolis Craft Market,  @lauren_hugh, @foodandforkmn, @katierobisonblogs, and @brilewerke.
