Giving thanks to local business owners

This Thanksgiving, let's celebrate our communities and our neighbors. In that spirit, let's give thanks to our local business owners, who are responsible for encouraging economic activity, banishing blight from neighborhoods, sending tax dollars to our local schools and law enforcement, and keeping our communities strong.

To give thanks, make sure to visit your favorite local business for your holiday shopping. By keeping your holiday shopping local, you are supporting our local businesses and helping them to maximize their positive impact in the community. Starting on November 23 and running through December 24, Buy Local Month will serve as a reminder to support your local businesses this holiday season. You can check out the specials that Local First Arizona members are running throughout this entire month-long celebration of local businesses.

Here at Local First Arizona, we are also thankful for our best-ever Certified Local Fall Festival, and that we were able to spend the day with so many of you in support of our local businesses! Be sure to check out this video recap of the day's activities:
