'Vicinity' is a new app that helps consumers earn rewards for shopping locally. While many major retailers offer loyalty programs, smaller businesses are often unable to offer the same kind of perks. This app gives users a way to earn rewards and support local businesses at the same time.

Vicinity is a mobile app available for iOS and Android devices. The app helps users discover local businesses by showing them the location of participating retailers in their neighborhood. Users are then rewarded for shopping locally with points for different purchases. All of these points and rewards are tracked directly in the app and can eventually be used for free items and discounts at popular places.

With more consumers interested in shopping local, this app provides a great incentive for supporting small businesses.
