About Go Local Austin

The benefits of shopping locally are irrefutable: it keeps our money in the local economy helping independent businesses compete against big national chains. It lessens our impact on the Earth’s environment, and it nurtures that curious and beautiful thing that makes our community so…OURS. Go Local’s mission is very simple: to simultaneously champion the businesses that make our community unique and reward the people that support them.
