Benefits of Being a Localist

The Localist program is Local First Arizona's individual membership program. Stand up and support YOUR community by proudly declaring, “I am a Localist!” This is much, much more than a run-of-the-mill loyalty program for individuals. Being a Localist isn’t only about discounts and freebies (although there will be those, too). As a Localist, you are part of a movement that supports local businesses and has fun along the way!
