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.

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,  reducing human bear conflicts at your business, running shop local and eat local campaigns, and more. We show up for the meetings you can’t, so that you can spend more time running your business.
