Join Stay Local! on Saturday, November 22 and help inject $1.8 million into New Orleans through shopping & dining only locally-owned! Thousands of other conscientious shoppers across the country will be unchaining themselves right along with you.
Your choice of where to spend your money has an impact on New Orleans' public services, its schools, its character, and its eco-friendliness.
Studies demonstrate that dollars spent at locally-owned independent businesses generate three times more economic activity in our community than dollars spent at chains. Gambit Weekly has jumped on the Local First train and is urging readers to stay local with their holiday spending, too, with a special promotion for those who pledge to shop local.
The New Orleans Craft Mafia wants to let everyone know that we have the following Stay Local specials going on, for the November 22nd event and throughout the holiday season:
