We invite independent business alliances, neighborhood associations, and local economy-minded business networks to join the Shop Indie Local movement, a year-round campaign to inspire community members to Choose Local First.
Shop Indie Local celebrates locally owned businesses and works to increase spending at these businesses. Together, we inspire our communities to take positive action and boost the ripple effects our neighborhoods, towns, and cities receive when we spend more of our dollars at locally owned, independent businesses.
AMIBA has led holiday shopping campaigns since 2010. In 2021, we increased our financial commitment and expanded this holiday campaign into a year-round initiative.
This grassroots initiative provides a platform to highlight work done in communities across North America and offers open-source tools and resources to communities, organizations, and small businesses to build our movement.
