See Warners’ Stellian at MetroIBA Annual Meeting

Warners' Stellian is proudly hosting Gov. Mark Dayton as keynote speaker of the Metro Independent Business Alliance's Annual Meeting Wednesday night.

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.

Gov. Mark Dayton will give the keynote address to our alliance and guests as we enjoy refreshments from fellow members of our local, independent business alliance such as:

  • Aesop’s Table
  • Flat Earth Brewing Co.
  • Key’s Cafe
  • Peace Coffee
  • Mama’s Pizza
  • Sharrett’s Liquors

I’ll be there listening to the guv over a slice of some of my favorite St. Paul treats: a slice of Mama’s and a glass of Flat Earth Cygnus X Porter.

Celebrate Your Independents — businesses, that is

Think about your favorite business, be it a shop, restaurant or service provider. I’ll bet it’s a locally owned independent business, right?

These types of businesses provide the lifeblood of a community. Local independent businesses keep more money within the local economy (68 cents of every dollar spent versus 43 cents of every dollar spent at a national chain), as these businesses more often spend their money locally and support our local charities, schools, etc.

That’s why Warners’ Stellian wants its customers join us and the Metro Independent Business Alliance (MetroIBA) in celebrating these vital businesses this month. And there’s something in it for you, as well.

Throughout July, the Celebrate Your Independents promotion offers Twin Cities shoppers exclusive offers from 25 local, independent businesses as well as a chance to win $1,250 in gift cards from places such as Bibelot, Keys Café, Electric Fetus and First Tech — and more! For the promotion, Warners’ Stellian will be offering a free 10-year limited warranty on purchases $599 and up.
