Shop Locorum is an online marketplace that is exclusive to small, local businesses. At Locorum we’re passionate about helping people support local so we created a store where you can find all of your favourite local vendors under one virtual roof. To add to the convenience, once your order is fulfilled, we’ll deliver your goods to your door within 24 hours.
