We are honored to support and serve our surrounding communities. As retailers we understand that a key part of our communities are the growers, producers and artisans who provide delicious and fresh products to our store guests. Since our start in 1940, we have been committed to supporting local and as part of that commitment we have partnered with multiple local vendors across the eight Intermountain West states our retailers serve to bring Local Proud to shoppers. Local Proud identifies more than 2,200 locally sourced items with the Local Proud logo, making them easy to identify in our stores.
Through Local Proud we hope to:
- Provide our shoppers access to high quality local artisans, growers and producers
- Help grow the local economy by supporting and marketing local artisans, growers and producers who in turn hire more local workers, infuse money into the economy and foster strong local cultures
- Share our story and those of our partners
We define local products as items that are grown, finished or assembled in the state. These items represent a growing trend with shoppers who are interested in purchasing more locally sourced products. Local products often symbolize that products are fresher, safer and signals a stronger local economy, something guests can all appreciate when purchasing items for their families.
Our locally-owned and operated retailers can be found across Utah, Idaho, Colorado, Montana, Wyoming, Nevada, Arizona and Oregon. FIND A RETAILER near you.
