With the holidays rapidly approaching, many people’s thoughts are turning toward gift procurement. It is easy to fall into the trap of online shopping with all of the convenience it offers. Let us point out an alternative with many benefits, including support of our local businesses, support of our local schools and, of course, the coveted convenience!
The Go Local card is a program of the Asheville Grown Business Alliance that features over 400 locally-owned independent businesses in our area. Purchasing a card is a fantastic way to make a commitment to supporting the thriving and unique business culture in Asheville as well as supporting local public schools. The 2016 card raised over $18,000 for our public schools and the goal is to surpass that number in 2017.
The 2017 Go Local card will be available to purchase by the end of November at Asheville Grown and in the offices of local public schools. Cards are also available at a discount in bulk (think holiday shopping in one fell swoop)! Half of the price of the $16 card goes to support local public schools. You may either designate a school to support or have it spread evenly across all of the city public schools.
This powerful card has membership benefits in many categories, including Eats Drinks and Entertainment, Fashion and Accessories, Professional Services, Health and Beauty, Outdoors and more! The full list of discounts can be found here.
