Stay Local!

Aug 2006

A project of The Urban Conservancy, Stay Local! is a city-wide initiative for creating a strong economy based on locally owned and operated business. Stay Local! encourages consumers to shop locally while helping independent businesses compete more effectively. Are you a local business? Add your business to the online directory.

Learn more about shopping at local businesses and why it matters.

Check out this cool 90-second video, created by one of our Stay Local!-listed businesses, DocNO Productions and featuring three other Stay Local! entrepreneurs!
