localistFrom June 27th­ to July 5th, celebrate Independents Week and independent businesses by using your  Golden Coupon! When you spend your money at a locally-owned business, up to four times more stays and circulates throughout the local economy. This creates local jobs, strengthens local services like libraries, and creates vibrant, unique communities that we are proud to call home.

Arizona residents and businesses can get the Golden Coupon at the Local First Arizona website by downloading it to a smartphone or printing it out! You can use your Golden Coupon at hundreds of local restaurants, shops and service businesses across Arizona this week!

Many local businesses are online as well, so you don’t even have to leave your house (in this heat) to support local businesses! We’re excited to support local online businesses and be part of the proud Arizona small business community. For those small businesses using live chat, the purchasing process is even more delightful for their visitors and return customers. If you’re a local Arizona business that doesn’t already use live chat, we’re offering a discount on Pure Chat this week!

View the whole list at the Local First Arizona website. And thanks for making a difference in your community by choosing to support local businesses!
