TUPELO, Miss. (WTVA) – A long-time Tupelo retailer is looking at going online this holiday shopping season.
Reed’s Department Store already has a website where you can buy select items.
With the new online store, Reed’s president Bennett Mize said the public can still support their local community.
Many local stores have turned to social media to market their products.
"A lot of people come in with their phone and say, ‘This is what I want; I saw on your Instagram or Facebook.’"
Mize hopes to have the updated website going by the end of next month.
He is encouraging more downtown shops to turn to online shopping as well.
“Your phone truly is your platform,” he said. “It’s kind of like our menu we hand you.”
Reed's still offers curbside service.
