It’s National Independents Week. That means that for one week, all across the country, communities are committing to support their local economies by restricting their patronage to locally owned and operated businesses.

Here, Local First Arizona is doing its part to encourage local purchases by offering a 20% off Golden Coupon that is redeemable at 200 homegrown businesses. To get in on the savings, print the coupon below, download a copy from or grab a few while you’re out and about at events and farmers markets this week.

And, don’t forget to take the pledge. Stand up and read this aloud:

YES! I understand that my dollars can help build a sense of place, a higher quality of life and a stronger economy!

I hereby take the pledge to buy locally during National Independents Week, June 27 through July 4, to help celebrate the diversity and vibrancy that makes me proud to call Arizona home.

Now go use your Golden Coupon.
Participating Downtown Phoenix faves include: Bliss/Rebar, Bunky Boutique, Butter Toast, Frances Vintage, Halo Precision Piercing, Humble Pie (formally The Living Room on 7th St.), Kooky Krafts, Made Art Boutique, Practical Art, The Clarendon Hotel, Urban Beans, Urban Cookies, SuTRA Midtown, and WHEAT Clothes Silo & Fair Trade Store.

We just have one question: do fireworks stands count as local?
