Choose Local Durham First

Within a decade, we have seen tremendous change in the Triangle and particularly in Durham. Our community is evolving at a rapid pace, and it’s become commonplace to read headlines of long-time local businesses closing and to see “Lost our Lease” signs in windows. Instead of communities rooted in local character, we see policies and market forces constructing an architecture of ‘Anywhere, USA.’

At Sustain-a-bull, we are building an economy that is anchored in local ownership, because we believe that local-independent businesses are the cornerstone of our culture, economy and character. We are the on-the-ground advocate working around-the-clock for our homegrown businesses – ultimately shaping the community we want.

Thank You For Your Support!

You care about the community, you understand the value that local businesses add to your quality of life, you want your children and grandchildren to experience the same vibrant community that you do. 

Donating to Sustain-a-Bull means you are accepting responsibility for the wonderful place you call home. You’re a Localist.

It comes with the recognition that our choices make it great and without our efforts – together, as friends and neighbors – it won’t be that way forever. Localists might not own a local business, but are supporters of the movement because they love the place they live and want to help their community thrive.
