Cultivate Community Prosperity
The prosperity of our local community is directly tied to the richness and diversity of creative people who have dared to take their inspiration to the streets -- to launch their own business. These people are our neighbors and friends. Most of them don't have outrageous ambitions of making millions to retire at age 35. Most of them just want a way to offer what they do to the world and make a decent living.
Support Our Community
In these difficult economic times, we have two choices. We can make all of our purchase decisions based on price, taking our shopping power to vote for mega stores, surrendering our community wealth into the hands of faceless corporations, driven to make a profit at all costs, uncaring and unappreciative of what makes us and our Boulder Valley special. Or, we can invest that money in patronizing the stores of our local friends and neighbors — keeping our wealth in our community, and casting the vote we make with each dollar we spend wisely in support of those we love and who bring meaning to our lives.
Get Great Discounts
As further incentive, most BIBA businesses offer great discounts and specials to cardholding supporters and fellow member businesses. We've provided a member directory online, where you can identify local businesses offering the products and services you need. Our member businesses are vetted -- they must be independently owned and based in Boulder County to qualify for membership. We have also put a coupon book online, where you can find and print coupons for great discounts at our member businesses.
The Local and Loving It Discount Card costs only $10 and is good for a full year. The money we receive helps us in our efforts to increase the wealth of our local community, advocate on behalf of our member businesses and secure a rich, compassionate future for our posterity.
