All Independents Week asks in return is that you take a short pledge before downloading your “Golden Coupon”…

“YES! I understand that my dollars can help build a sense of place, a higher quality of life and a stronger economy!

I hereby take the pledge to buy locally during National Independents Week, June 29 through July 5, to help celebrate the diversity and vibrancy that makes me proud to call Arizona Home.”

Independents Week runs from Monday, June 29 to Sunday July 5.

Independents Week is also showing us how to shop local with these…
10 Tips for Shopping Local

  1. Plan your week: List all the things you do on a regular basis – lunch, groceries, etc. – and figure out a local alternative to the usual chain coffeehouse or mega-mart.
  2. Check out the “Golden Coupon” participants and download your ticket to saving 20%: Can these businesses help you hold up your end of the pledge this week?
  3. Download the “Small Wonders” map for shopping and dining destinations in Central Phoenix.
  4. Ask friends, family, colleagues for local recommendations.
  5. Review the Top 10 Lists of Favorites from Arizona leaders for their recommendations.
  6. Visit a Farmer’s Market to buy locally grown produce this week – or visit the Arizona Farm Bureau’s www.fillyourplate.org Web site to find local farmers and ranchers.
  7. Look for the round, black and red “Local First” stickers in store windows to be sure!
  8. Check the labels on the products you buy at local stores – and see if these items are made or grown in Arizona to double your impact.
  9. Always use the search directory at www.localfirstaz.com to look for products and services in a variety of categories and search by keyword, city or ZIP code.
  10. Tell your friends and family that You’re Going 100% Local and ask them to join you!
