Stay Local! defines a local business as one that is owned in majority by New Orleans area resident(s), and is responsible for its own decision making regarding marketing, operations, and legal proceedings; businesses registered as "non-Louisiana" with the Louisiana Secretary of State do not qualify for listing. By joining Stay Local! you are affirming that your business conforms to Stay Local!'s definition of a locally owned and operated business.


Stay Local! reviews all applications and may request more information from a business for the purpose of verifying local ownership. Stay Local! reserves the right to refuse membership to any business. If you have any questions about whether your business qualifies as locally owned and independent, please contact us.


Stay Local! is not responsible for quality of goods or services rendered by businesses represented on this website or in other materials produced by Stay Local!  Any grievances regarding goods or services should be made with the business in question first (our home grown businesses become stronger with your feedback). Further resolution may be achieved through contacting the New Orleans Better Business Bureau or the Consumer Protection Division of the Louisiana State Attorney General.
