As a participant, you must honor your offer to cardholders for 13 months from Dec.1st through December 31st of the following year. Note that you must reapply every year, however, we send you a pre-filled out form and only ask that you verify your information is still correct.

All businesses that participate in the program must fit the following criteria:
  • Independent and at least 50% owned in Buncombe County, North Carolina with no headquarters outside of NC.
  • Privately held and free to make their own business decisions without the need for approval by owners or affiliates outside of the area.

Why become a Go Local Partner?

We want our local businesses to invest in our urban public schools and we want our school community to shift their shopping to our local businesses. We’re interested in a win-win that will ensure that all of us grow and thrive together.
