Welcome to Shop Kemet.
We unite ethnic buyers and sellers in the spirit of cooperative economics. We exist to empower people and to create economic opportunity within our community.
We recognize that the Black Economy is currently on perilous footing because of the 2020 worldwide pandemic. The African American community and our allies must rally to support its small businesses in order to prevent devastating mass losses that stand to wipe out years of gains. Cooperative economics and Shop Kemet’s BlackEconOnMe™ initiative will give Black-owned businesses weathering this crisis a fighting chance. We’re here to facilitate.
