Buy Local Starting Today and Save Moolah

Today is the infamous Black Friday, and even if you're not braving the Wal-Mart madness or the bumper cars of a mall parking lot today, you've likely got shopping on the brain. What auspicious timing for Local First Arizona to introduce Buy Local Week, where you can scap up restaurant gift certificates, glasses of wine or take-home foodstuffs for a fraction of the usual price at participating local indie retailers.

The event kicks off with a press conference and luncheon featuring Phoenix mayor Phil Gordon and Congressman Harry Mitchell this morning at 10:30 a.m. at the Basha's in Ahwatukee, 4855 E Warner Rd. Also look for food vendors including Simply Bread. Buy Local Week runs today through Friday, December 4.
