Buy Local Week!

Friday, November 25th marks the launch of Buy Local Week in Tucson - your opportunity to support the LOCAL businesses that support our community (and often times, support our Community Radio!).

73 cents of every dollar spent at a locally-owned business stays in our community, versus only 43 cents spent at a national chain. Those extra 30 cents mean great jobs in our community.

Your holiday shopping can have a big impact!
