Did you know that three times as much of your money stays in the community when you buy locally?
And why wouldn’t you spend here; The Twin Cities is home to a unique crop of businesses that add so much to our community both economically and philanthropically.
Along with hundreds of other local, independent businesses, we partner with the Metro Independent Business Alliance, a nonprofit that working to support and preserve businesses like us in the Twin Cities region.
MetroIBA’s mission is to help the Twin Cities maintain its unique community character, provide continuing opportunities for entrepreneurs, build economic strength, and create an environment where locally owned, independent businesses grow and flourish.
Every year at our annual meeting, we celebrate our accomplishments and (not ones to rest on our laurels), share our goals for the next year.
