One response to “Local First Arizona speaker @DGT

  1. Erika spoke of Local First Arizona’s online directory of over 2500 locally owned businesses, Independents’ Week in July, recent Buy Local initiatives and advocacy efforts. Every $100 spent locally retains $45 in this state, but $100 spent on national companies only retains $13 here. Goal is for people to shift 10% of their spending to local markets/businesses/products. Businesses sign up at their website, http://www.localfirstAZ.com, to encourage “economic gardening”. Shop local.
