On November 22, Celebrate American Unchained

November 13th, 2008

In 2003 a coalition of locally owned Austin businesses developed Austin Unchained, a one-day event in which people were urged to spend their money at locally owned stores. Over the years this idea has spread until it has become a national event known as America Unchained, which will be celebrated on November 22 this year. The Austin Independent Business Alliance encourages people to participate, claiming that if everyone in the city did even a small amount of their holiday shopping in local stores, millions of dollars could be pumped into the local economy. This can strengthen the overall economy while allowing towns and cities to keep their individual charm.

The AIBA currently represents over 300 local companies. If you are thinking about opening a business or buying an Austin home, contact the Carvajal group at 512-419-7770 to learn about local real estate.
