Whether you are just visiting the Flathead Valley or you live here, plan your shopping using the Go Local Guide!
The Guides are available at many local businesses or pick some up here at our office in Kalispell. You can also download the latest version of the Go Local Guide by clicking here.
The Flathead Valley is unlike any other place in the world. By choosing to support locally owned businesses, you help to maintain our community's diversity and distinctive flavor while discovering many of the unique shops throughout the area.
The benefits of buying local are well known. More money stays in the local economy - local businesses make us special, create higher paying jobs, nurture our community, support local farms and help preserve the Flathead Landscape.
History of The Guide
With the growing interest in buy-local options in the Flathead Valley, Citizens for a Better Flathead offered our volunteer energy and skills to help publish the first free hard-copy guide to shopping locally in the Flathead in November of 2009 entitled Think Local First, A Guide To Local Shopping For The Holidays And Beyond.
After the success of this publication and at the urging of many local businesses, we now publish a biannual Go Local Flathead: Guide to Local Businesses.
