The mission of Buy Into Bay Area-Think Local is to expand the traditional focus beyond retail restaurants and entertainment businesses to promote the full range of what our community has to offer including health care facilities, volunteer opportunities, education options and much more.

Buy Into Bay Area helps to strengthen our community's economy. Buying local means keeping money in our local area and makes a big impact on our local small businesses. A strong local economy continues to attract more services and businesses that, in return, benefit the community member even more.
