Shop Iowa Business Ambassadors

Our Ambassadors help spread the word about the Shop Iowa program to businesses and highlight the importance of shopping small and building loyalty towards local businesses.
"As a small business I love supporting other small businesses. I also love learning from and sharing ideas with other people so being ambassador is a perfect avenue for that."

I also have a passion for small businesses and love how this pulls many Iowa businesses together in one location that is very convenient for the shopper."
"Shop Iowa has been a great addition to my business. I'd like to support it and give back to the community."
