dsmBUZZ is a grassroots initiative that exists to promote the efforts of locally owned businesses in central Iowa. Our mission is to be a resource for residents and visitors interested in finding out about the uniquely independent businesses in our community. We provide a collective voice for the buy local movement to encourage consumers to support their locally owned entrepreneurial neighbors.
We are building a central Iowa community that reaches across neighborhoods, towns, and chambers of merchants banded together to promote the concept of buying locally more often. Many of these businesses will be some of your favorites, but others may be new to you. We encourage you to celebrate and visit them as they are a part of your community and work here to market their own enterprise and bolster the mission.
Hi, I’m Sherry, a town crier for locally owned merchants here in central Iowa. I’m the owner of a small business too called Storied Gifts and learning the lessons of what that means right along with all the participating merchants here on dsmBUZZ. You can check out more about my entrepreneurial lessons by reading my biz brain blog posts. The point of dsmBUZZ is to create a win-win-win environment where you can learn about your neighbors, be inspired, find cool things and service and gather education too. Thanks for reading and your support.
