iSPI holiday shop.
we are university-led
it's a holiday shop.
give local this holiday.
Springfield is special for so many reasons. For our vibrant history and arts culture, for our small-town living with big-city amenities, but most of all, Springfield is special because of the diverse and brilliant people who call the capital city home.
This giving season, we're celebrating the small businesses who call Springfield their home and who have established their headquarters at Innovate Springfield, in the heart of our community. Because when you purchase from a local business, you're supporting the local economy in a meaningful way.
