$3,601,171 is our Local Economic Impact Goal.
Just think. If every family in Flagstaff, Sedona, Williams & Winslow spent just an extra $10 a month with a locally-owned, independent business instead of a national chain, over $3 million* would be directly returned to our local economies. That means better schools, better roads, more support for police, fire and rescue departments and stronger local economies.
* Based on Civic Economics Andersonville Study of Retail Economics: When you spend $100 at an independent business, $68 returns to the local economy versus $43 when spent with a national chain. Taking Northern Arizona Census projections of local households it is estimated that $3,601,171.
The Northern Arizona Cooperative supports local business and encourages all our members and residents to help us retain our independent businesses. Our Independent businesses are one of many reasons why we live in and love Northern Arizona.
Did you do your part this month and spend an extra $10 at a local independent business? If every family in Northern Arizona spent an extra $10 a month locally we would all feel better about the Economy
