Dig Local is a free mobile app that was created to showcase local businesses, restaurants, services, events, artists and musicians. Dig Local guides its users to local independent retailers with an interactive map featuring information on the best local hot spots, as well as DailyScoops for the latest deals and special events. Dig Local enables people with a “buy local” mindset to support independent businesses and enjoy authentic experiences as the locals do.
