BUILDING A STRONG COMMUNITY!
Shop Local First is a new non-profit organization that aims to help keep Carlinville a unique
place with a healthy, stable economy.
Our membership is made up of large and small businesses throughout the Carlinville area that are interested in spreading the word about the significant economic and cultural contributions that local businesses make to our community.
On this site you’ll find a business directory of members, where you can discover what they do, their products and services, where they’re located, and how to contact them. Unlike some for-profit “shop local” web sites, most all of the businesses on this site are locally-owned, independently managed, and have made a commitment to building up Carlinville.
