What we do

WHAT IS SHOPS’ NOIR

Shop’s Noir is an online International marketplace dedicated to giving the growing black owned African, Caribbean business community a place to create their own online store to showcase their products and services to the worldwide community. There will be a mixture of traditional and non-traditional items for sale by artisan producers.

Noir Business Limited is the parent company of Shops’ Noir and was founded in 2014 because it was felt that the African, Caribbean business community was no longer visible on the high streets of the UK. We started championing the idea of a “Buy Black Business Weekender” supported by our first retail initiative “The Black British Business Expo” in 2014 which was repeated in 2015. In that year we also hosted our first Noir Business Seminar.

Noir Business felt it was time to open a shop front and therefore Shops’ Noir was formed.

You can only apply for an online store if you are from the African, Caribbean community. You must be over 18 years or have permission from a responsible adult either a parent or guardian. We welcome all communities to have a look at what Shops’ Noir have to offer, you may just be amazed.
