Shift Your Shopping 2014 brings big opportunities for small businesses

In a world where the corporations and big box retailers have so many advantages, it’s increasingly difficult for small businesses to compete. Go Local’s mission is to support the local independently owned businesses. We’ve never been in a better position to do that than we are right now.

Go Local will launch two business tools this month, and Localist Loyalty Card. In addition to that, look for posters and billboards throughout Tacoma encouraging citizens to Shift Their Shopping to local businesses during the holidays. Details at this link

Building Community
one cup at a time


What’s all the buzz about?
  1MC is created of, by, and for entrepreneurs. Creating a supportive, neutral space welcoming entrepreneurs to be open and honest about their businesses and the challenges they face. As opposed to a traditional “pitch” environment, 1MC was not created to be critical of entrepreneurs, but rather to learn from shared experiences and find ways to support one another as a community.

1 MC: Tacoma meets weekly on Wednesdays from 9 – 10 am at The Swiss.

There is a presentation with a Q&A session at each meeting.
Local Businesses are invited to present!
