Indie Week East Valley Spotlight

Local First Arizona is proud to announce that Independents Week has begun!  For one week, we are asking Arizonans to shop only at locally owned businesses.  Skip the chain and big box stores for an entire week - it's easier than you think!

We currently have over 180 locally owned businesses that will help make the switch to local easier.  These businesses are accepting the Golden Coupon which is good for a 20% discount off their goods or services (some restrictions apply).  Each day this week we will be highlighting some of the businesses accepting the Golden Coupon in different cities.  Simply print as many Golden Coupons as you want from our website and head out to find new local business or revisit one of your favorites.

And remember, we're giving away an amazing staycation package to the cool Verde Valley! The package, which includes a stay at Cottonwood's Annabel Inn, lunch at Crema Café and wine tastings/tours at Arizona Stronghold, Pillsbury Wine Company and Page Spring Cellars, will be randomly awarded to one lucky Indie Week participant!  Find out how to enter on our website.

Let's make an impact on Arizona's local businesses this week!
