New Albany, Indiana is home to many independently owned businesses. New Albany First is the only Independent Business Alliance that exists solely to support and promote independent business owners and to educate community members about the importance of buying locally in New Albany and Floyd County.

New Albany First works to create a community culture that values local independents by raising public awareness of the benefits of local buying. We promote independent businesses to help them better compete with national and transnational chains and preserve our community’s character. Through our education and outreach programs, we increase awareness and support for local independent businesses.

We are an affiliate member of the American Independent Business Alliance (AMIBA). Our AMIBA affiliation allows us to provide our members with even more tools and resources to strengthen their local businesses.
