 About the Be Local Coupon Book

A coffee table favorite when you’re deciding what to do over the weekend, or where to go out to dinner that night… it’s the best “deal” in town. 

Coming out each November and good all year long, this book serves as an introduction to La Plata County’s incredible locally owned and independent businesses that make this community’s vibrancy, culture and attraction what it is.

With unique coupon offers new and long time locals can’t get anywhere else, each book takes on a new theme and tells a story while educating and featuring all of our fabulous member businesses and organizations of La Plata County. It truly is The Localist Manifesto – in print!

Testimonials

I get so many coupons back, there’s no way I would miss this opportunity! It’s one of my best marketing investments!”

Benefits of Buying Local: Why the Be Local Book is Successful

  • For every $100 spent at a locally owned business, $73 goes back into the community. In contrast, for every $100 spent at a chain store, only $43 comes back.
  • Supporting our independent, locally owned businesses helps La Plata County maintain its unique character, historic identity, and tourism appeal.
  • A strong network of individuals and businesses that are committed to their community and to buying locally will benefit from more sales tax revenue that comes from local shopping, helping to support local services like our public library and firefighters.
