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!

As a Localist, you'll get: 

  • Exclusive invites to Localist-only experiences, events, and opportunities.
  • Your very own Localist card to identify you as a Localist and to redeem offers. 
  • Discounts on Local First Arizona events. 
  • First dibs on knowledge about local happenings in your area. 
  • A robust and vibrant community because of all the thriving local businesses you'll be supporting.
  • Plus much more.

“I believe in supporting the local economy, and I would like to see more local businesses succeed.
Plus, I love the social aspect of it too. As a Localist I’m always meeting new people and trying new things!”
— Lora Dalbo, Localist
