The Austin Independent Business Alliance is a group of locally owned and managed independent businesses that are passionate about their community and about their unique contributions to it. A.I.B.A. works actively to ensure the success of Austin’s local independent businesses, so that we can continue to contribute to Austin’s rich character and vibrant quality of life. As a group, we believe that by preserving what is unique about our city, we can all continue to thrive as well as avoid becoming “Anywhere USA.” We believe in living as world citizens while buying locally when possible. It is by preserving the richness and diversity of choice in Austin that we will all continue to thrive and prosper.
