Local First Indiana
Local First Indiana seeks to develop a unique support network for locally owned, independent business, promoting thinking and buying locally. Bloomington is a vibrant community with a local character appreciated by long time residents, students and visitors. Local business is at thecenter of that character. In communities across the country Local First campaigns aid independent businesses in increasing profits, facilitating business to business networking, and educating the public about the benefits of supporting local businesses. The organization formed in early 2009 and now operates under the fiscal sponsorship of the Center for Sustainable Living (www.simplycsl.org), a nonprofit, tax-exempt group based in Bloomington.
