Dave Asher, Founder of BuyLocalRenoSparks, BuyLocalRuralNV and BuyNevadaFirst has begun to corner the market on hyper-local business advocacy. In just more than a year he has established and expanded his "buy local" initiative and created a free online directory for locally owned small businesses. In recent months he developed a 10 percent shift campaign to encourage northern Nevada consumes to spend more of their money at home in order to reap the benefits of increased tax revenue.
We've been promoting Buy Local = Jobs since 2009. Our Grand Opening and Ribbon Cutting for the Vassar Cordone business site in 2011 opened many doors for the Live Local and Green businesses in the Reno-Sparks area. In 2014 we re branded to Buy Nevada First. September of 2014 we opened The Buy Nevada First Gift Shop & Visitors Center. A 4,000 sq. ft store in the Reno Town Mall filled with products Nevada made local owned. We feature work from over 300 Nevada vendors. "It's all about creating jobs and turning our economy around," said Dave Asher, Founder.
I’m Dave Asher, a 3rd generation Renoite and founder Buy Local Reno-Sparks, now Buy Nevada First. I started this Reno-Sparks buy local campaign in 2009. I later learned of the great benefits to local job creation by shifting our purchases to locally owned businesses. I, with the help of many others promoted the Buy Local idea in our area. I then created an on-line directory offering a FREE listing to all that are Locally Owned. We do this to identify which business in our area ARE locally owned and ask consumers to choose local first. We link to those businesses with this web site and on-line directory. Call 775-224-2242

Buy Nevada First Gift Shop & Visitors Center

As of Sept. 2014 we are headquartered at the Reno Town Mall. We have a 4,000 sq. ft. store featuring over 3,500 products from over 300 local vendors. We started out in the Vassar-Cordone Non Profit Center. This building was built in the 70s and is now owned and managed by AMH Properties. The building was fully updated by AMH in 2009. AMH Properties partnered with Buy Nevada First to open a Local Business Community Support Center. We offered affordable office space in our co-working office suite. We started with an 1,800 sq. ft. co-working office in the Lower Level of the building in 2011. At the end of 2013 we expanded to another 2,400 sq. ft. in the Penthouse. The tenants of this building are fortunate to have a classroom that seats up to 80, a meeting room that seats up to 30, and an executive board room that seats 16.
