Let your customers know you are a local business by requesting a One Albuquerque #BuyLocal sticker! Upon request, the City provides businesses with free window stickers to be displayed prominently for customers to easily identify local businesses. Post the sticker on your business window, on your booth, or near your register. If you don't have a #BuyLocal sticker request one below!

How to Get Involved If You Don't Own A Business

#BuyLocal is a community initiative that extends beyond City Hall. We encourage all Albuquerque residents to make conscious decisions to #BuyLocal. This means making choices like eating at local establishments, shopping local, purchasing produce at farmers markets, and getting haircuts by a local barber or salon. For every $100 spent in locally owned businesses $68 dollars stays in the Albuquerque economy, through taxes, payroll and other expenditures as compared to only $43 when selecting to spend at larger chains based in other parts of the country or world.
