Small businesses are having a rough time surviving in this time and place and in other rural towns across the Midwest. Increasing numbers of people are shopping online, while most of the little money still spent locally goes to Wal-Mart, Hy-Vee, BP and other large retail chain stores, which further drain revenues out of the local economy.

The Fairfield Small Business Vitality Project currently represents over 100 members who are part of a turn-key, internationally successful solution to create consumer awareness of local businesses.

"A city needs businesses. Without them, it degrades to a bedroom town for some other city. In Fairfield, we do not have some other city.  We want and need to support our local businesses and merchants." - Nancy Morrissey, Executive Director, Fairfield Area Chamber of Commerce. 

Our antidote against the high small business mortality in Fairfield and rural Iowa is a simple, inexpensive, universal, and internationally established incentive program for shoppers to buy local, bring in business from outside, and create additional income for your business when your own members (i.e. your own registered customers) shop, online or offline, with any of our more than 40,000 other affiliates in 46 countries worldwide.

When you join our network, you will generate additional sales and receive super-store business power tools at a small business price.

The Fairfield Small Business Vitality Project aims to use this program as a community development project. To get started in Fairfield, we are initially looking for 10 businesses to join, achieving a success together which you could not achieve alone. Others will follow later, but the first 10 will reap the most benefits in the long-run.
