Who is Local First Ogden?
Local First Utah is viewed nationally as one of the most vibrant and active Local First organizations around the country, so it was only natural that with Ogden’s long and rich history of locally owned businesses, and unique spirit of independent business ownership, that we should become the first Local First Chapter outside the Salt Lake City vicinity. Established in April 2010, Local First Ogden works to proclaim the economic benefits derived from our locally owned business community. Unlike other business organizations, Local First Ogden is run by an amazing team of volunteers, and we collect no dues or membership fees. There is absolutely no cost to become a Local First Ogden Partner.
