Go Local Asheville

Go Local Asheville was founded 12 years ago as a membership based organization that preserves and supports the local independent business community. Currently at over 520 business members, there is no cost to become a member. We ask that businesses provide a perk or discount to Go Local cardholders. Go Local cards give access to the businesses discounts. Proceeds support the local independent business community with a portion donated to Asheville City Public Schools.

Services: Marketing, Content Development & Production, Personal Growth & Enrichment


Go Local Asheville supports the local independent business community because they are the backbone of Asheville’s vibrant economy.

Local independent businesses are better positioned to respond to the needs of our community, our cultural organizations, and nonprofits, and are inherently tied to Asheville’s future.

Local Businesses:

  • Grow Asheville’s unique character and inspire entrepreneurship
  • Encourage decision-making and civic engagement at the local level

  • Increase environmental resilience and responsibility

  • Focus on collaboration and healthy competition

  • Keep our dollars in Asheville’s local economy resulting in more jobs and increased wages

  • Strengthen the local supply chain by replacing imported goods and services

With our over 520 local independent business members, we work to build awareness of the community as a whole as well as individual businesses within this community. Through our directories, print and on-line, our smartphone app, social media, workshops and events, monthly newsletter, local partnerships and collaborations, our one goal is to assure we preserve and support what makes Asheville so unique.
