Best Local Shoppers: TIE: Go Local Austin; Austin Independent Business Alliance

Attention, shoppers! Shifting 10% of your spending to local stores would add 3,000 jobs to the Austin economy, and it's as easy now as when your great-great grammy bought a pelt at the trading post. The Austin Independent Business Alliance has made their IBIZ shopping districts the place to stock up (just look for the sign of the armadillo in shades). Don't think small business means big prices: The $10-a-year Go Local Card gives you the incentive to dump the chain stores in favor of hundreds of discount-offering Austinites. Seems a little bit of something local in your basket means a better future for Austin shopkeepers.
