Triad Local First


Triad Local First is a non-profit membership organization based in Greensboro, North Carolina, with over 360 members – retail shops, real estate agents, insurance brokers, marketing and advertising firms, accountants, dentists, restaurants, farmers, breweries, and more.


Triad Local First invigorates and supports our locally owned, independent businesses and provides opportunities for community building. We prevent the displacement of community based businesses by national chains through education and advocacy. We cultivate an economy anchored in local ownership because local independent businesses are the cornerstone of culture, economy, and a unique and vibrant community.
