Great info from Local First AZ. Times are tough economically for most people, spending is down. This is hard on everyone but particularly on small businesses. If you are planning on doing some holiday shopping anyway choose locally owned businesses. Supporting local small businesses is important and it is great to see when local officials bring attention to this. Kudos to Mayor Phil Gordon and thanks to Local First for all they do to help the little guy!
