With a shared commitment to building vibrant communities, DMB and our commercial properties have joined Local First Arizona.
Local First is a non-profit membership
organization working to strengthen communities and local economies through support and celebration of locally owned businesses across Arizona.
Economic studies show significantly more money re-circulates when consumers choose to support locally owned businesses. In addition, locally owned businesses regularly purchase from other local retailers, manufacturers, service providers and farms. Supporting our locally owned businesses is critical in growing a strong economy and tax base.
As an Arizona-based business, DMB is known for its unique developments that complement and enhance the greater community. Local businesses have a large presence at our Company’s commercial centers: Centerpoint on Mill, Market Street at DC Ranch and Main Street at Verrado.
Centerpoint on Mill features Local First member Canteen Modern Tequila Bar as well as many local businesses including Churchill’s Fine Cigars, Robbie Fox’s, Devil’s Diner, MADCAP Theaters, Montage Art Studio, Sitewire and coming soon Handlebar & Grill.
Market Street has over 20 local businesses including: Armitage Bistro, The Herb Box, Delia’s Cleaners, DC Ranch Animal Hospital, L’Hermitage, Market Street Dental, Par Exsalonce, The Pilates Room, Ship-Rite, The Silverleaf Group, West Addison and coming soon Market Street Kitchen.
The majority of Main Street at Verrado’s merchants are local – Grazie Pizzeria, Ground Control, Anderson Institute of Music and Main Street Dental – and also includes the
anchor store and Local First member Bashas’.
As part of the Local First membership, DMB Associates and its commercial centers including Centerpoint on Mill, Market Street, and Main Street at Verrado are profiled on the Local First website and listed within the Local First directory.
