It’s Indie Week!
As long time, proud members of Local First Arizona, we get super excited for this week every year!
What is Local First Arizona? It’s a nonprofit organization that celebrates independent, locally owned businesses. They support, promote and advocate for a strong local business community and raise public awareness of the economic and cultural benefits provided by strong local economies. Local businesses contribute to a sustainable economy for Arizona and build vibrant communities we’re all proud to call home. We LOVE that this is our home!
So what is Indie Week and why will you love it? Local First Arizona honors independent businesses with a statewide campaign, called Independents Week, or “Indie Week”, from Saturday, June 29 – Sunday, July 7, 2019. Arizonans can participate in the campaign by using a Golden Coupon at hundreds of participating local businesses to receive a 20% discount throughout the week.
Independents Week aims to boost local business support during the summertime, when the temperature heats up and businesses in the Phoenix area see profits dip. The goal of the annual campaign is to not only add more dollars to our local economies but encourage localists to discover something local and new.
“Independents Week is a great way to try a new business and support your community,” says Thomas Barr, Executive Director of Local First Arizona, “Local businesses are vital to our economy and help to keep four times more dollars here. This campaign is a way to celebrate local businesses and show our local pride.”
So, visit localfirstaz.com and get that Golden Coupon so you can support local and save big! Who knows, you might discover a local business you have never patronized before and that is great for Arizona!
