Get Involved With Local First
We Stand With You
As a small business owner you may feel like you’re on this journey alone. Competing with online retailers, big box stores, and high rent prices can be overwhelming.
That’s why we’re here. Meet our other local, independent business owners and learn why we stand with you.
Thank you to our Founding Members!
Eat Local Month 2020
Celebrate and support the local food businesses that make this such a delicious place to live!
Every Friday from September 25 – October 16, pick up and enjoy a gourmet “take-out” dinner from Durango’s best local farms and restaurants. Each $75 ticket includes three courses, a hand-crafted cocktail, and a donation to an organization working hard to support Durango during this unprecedented time.
Let Us Be Your Voice
As a nonprofit business alliance, we serve as the voice of the local, independent business community.
We advocate for you on the issues that you care about, whether that’s having a greater choice in local energy generation, informing you on increased sales taxes, or creating events around shopping and eating local. We show up for the meetings you can’t so that you can spend more time running your business.
Local Starts With You
Don’t own a business? Support the local, independent businesses you know and love here in La Plata County. Check out our latest ways to get involved to meet other people who love where they live, go to fun localist events, and get exclusive deals and offers.
