If you're a small, one of a kind business owner, you may feel as if you're up against a barrier the size of Mr. Everest.
How can you compete against the big chains, the big stores, the big money. At one time or another, just about everyone has gone through it. But in our state, there's a thriving organization called Local First Arizona.
It's made up of over 2,500 members. They are local business people who are not shortsighted isolationists, just folks in neighborhoods like yours who don't want the national retailers to go away, they just want you to think Local First.
Kimber Lanning is the founder and executive director and spends each day celebrating the economic advantages of buying Arizona.
