Vote to Support Local Businesses

Every year the Arizona Business News hosts a contest highlighting favorite businesses in the Flagstaff area (opened to companies in Sedona, Williams, and Winslow too). Their “Best of Business” contest provides an opportunity for you to show your love for your favorite businesses in over 125 categories. Each category is an open field so you can type in the name of any business you choose. Deadline for voting is midnight on October 31, 2016. Vote Here

The Power of Your Vote:

Your vote is your voice! As an organization whose vision is to strive towards an Arizona economy that is sustainable, resilient, and celebratory of diverse cultures, we encourage you to use your vote to support locally-owned businesses as opposed to chains or big-box stores.

Studies and research have shown that the best and most direct way to achieve this vision of a healthy economy is to support local businesses. Dollars spent with Arizona's local businesses stay in the local economy and community longer than dollars spent with non-local businesses.
