“We are here for you”

Look for the sign!

Locals 4 Locals is a not-for-profit organisation dedicated solely to promoting community support for local business. Local businesses provide most jobs. Unlike big business, we consciously build the local economy by recirculating our revenue many times within the community rather than sending it back to a distant head office.

Our ideals are to enrich Armidale with a strong, community-supported, and locally-owned business base.  This will be achieved by highlighting the major contribution of local businesses to the general community, local schools, sporting groups and charities, community entities, festivals and fundraisers.

We also promote a high standard of customer service, ethical trading, and business referral between fellow members for mutual prosperity.

We recognise and promote local businesses entitled to display the Locals 4 Locals ‘stamp of approval’.

Benefits for you

By supporting a local business you not only help us provide jobs, especially for our young people, you help sustain the rich culture that underpins the lifestyle and values of our local community. Armidale thrives on sporting, special interest and charitable groups, who struggle to raise funds. They exist because people freely dedicate their time, money and knowledge for the things they love. It’s what brings people together and builds strong communities. That’s where Locals 4 Locals comes in. These are the groups that local businesses sponsor and the Locals 4 Locals logo symbolises the Armidale community working together. Why not support a local business so that Armidale continues to provide attractive career and lifestyle choices?
"Armidale has a lot to offer – a healthy environment and quality lifestyle rich in educational and cultural heritage, with amazingly diverse choices of shopping, trades and services, and sporting attractions. The local community must support local business for Armidale to remain amazing".
