Guide: Keep It Local This Season

Make just one person on your holiday shopping list “local only”

According to findings from Local First Utah, shifting just 10% of your spending to local businesses would keep approximately $1.3 billion in the Utah economy each year. Furthermore, the research shows that local retailers return more than half of their revenue to the local economy, versus just 13.6% from national chain retailers.

Salt Lake City has hundreds of locally owned small businesses perfect for shopping this holiday season. You can make a big difference to our local economy by simply committing to buying gifts for just one person on your holiday list from a local, Salt Lake City business.

We have compiled a list to help you get started. The businesses listed below have also received a loan from Salt Lake City’ Economic Development Loan Fund, a great program to help small businesses succeed!
