We’re proud new members of  Local First Arizona! Local First Arizona (LFA) is a statewide non-profit organization working to strengthen communities and local economies through growing, supporting, and celebrating locally owned businesses throughout the state of Arizona. Supporting local businesses is a no brainer – here’s some reasons why:
Boosts the Local Economy
When you spend money at a independent, locally owned business as opposed to nationally owned or chain businesses, a significantly higher percentage of that money is used to make purchases from other local businesses, service providers, farms and ranches, etc.  — continuing to strengthen the economic base of the community.

Provides Jobs
Not just provides jobs, but provides jobs to your community. When you purchase something locally, you’re not buying some CEO in another state his second vacation home, but instead helping the kid down the street pay for his little league jersey, or your neighbor put food on the dinner table.
Keeps it unique, keeps it ours
Northern Arizona is full of one-of-a-kind businesses that are all part of the reason we love to call it home. The local places where we eat, shop, and have fun are what make our community ours, and not just any. Why wouldn’t we support them?
Reduces Environmental Impact
It is easier for independently owned businesses to make their purchases locally, cutting down on transportation costs and pollution. They are located right in the community as well, so whether you’re going into a shop or business or you hire someone for a job, it’s just down the road.
Provides Better Service
Locally owned, independent companies are more likely to be passionate about what they do, their employees, and their customers.
