Become a Premiere IBIZ Merchant!
Becoming an IBIZ District Premiere Merchant has many benefits for your business and your district. Beyond the benefits, Premiere Merchants stabilize the IBIZ Program by making it self sufficient, allowing us to continue to support marketing and growth in your district. Becoming an IBIZ Premiere Merchant is an easy way to foster a thriving local business community in your neighborhood.
Additional Benefits for Premiere Merchants:
- 25% of your membership dues go into a fund for your IBIZ District (and will be available to spend once the District achieves Premiere qualification)
- Membership in the Austin Independent Business Alliance (AIBA)
- Discounts on advertising in the annual IBIZ District Guide
- Featured photos in electronic and print materials
- And more!
To be eligible for Premiere membership, at least 51% of the ownership of your business must reside in Austin and surrounding areas (Round Rock, Pflugerville, Lakeway, etc). Your business need not have a storefront but must be independent and not a franchise. AIBA reserves the right to decline membership to any business it deems not appropriate.
