If every family in Virginia Beach spent an extra $10 a month at a locally owned, independent business instead of a national chain, over $15 million would be directly returned to our economy each year!
Not only will you be saving your hard-earned dollars, but you’ll be supporting locally owned and operated businesses, and helping us give back to area non-profits! What’s better than supporting the group of ol’ surfers that opened the very first Chicho’s on Atlantic Ave in 1968? Or visiting the Beatles themed pub, Abbey Road Restaurant & Pub that opened in 1983 where you can still catch the owner running the show on a daily basis? How about the newly opened Wasserhund Brewing Company operated by a husband/wife team and their best bud? Nothing beats supporting local and recognizing the faces behind these businesses that are fighting every day for a better Virginia Beach. Additionally, we donate Locals Only™ cards to area non-profits to assist with their fundraising efforts. Since our launch in 2016 we have donated over $200,000 worth of Locals Only™ cards to local charities such as Virginia Beach CASA, Virginia Beach Chapter of the American Heart Association, Virginia Beach Education Foundation, The Noblemen and more!

About the Women Behind the Locals Only Card™
Gillian Bura is the owner of Better Your Business, a local small business marketing firm that has been helping small businesses manage social media and marketing since 2011. Nicole Maxino is the owner and founder of the VBnightlife website and mobile app that has been a trusted resource for events, bands / live entertainment and fundraisers in Virginia Beach since 2008.
The two ladies were brainstorming, as usual, about new ways to bring their clients business in the off season and the idea for Locals Only™ came up. *They happened to be sitting at locals’ favorite, Bad Ass Coffee where you can save 10% with your Locals Only™ Card* In an effort to keep the oceanfront bustling and locals feeling appreciated for their year-round business, the idea came to life. In just one year since the launch, the Locals Only™ card has been distributed to 14,500+ people, 80+ business have agreed to offer discounts to the site, and $100,000+ worth of cards have been donated back into the Virginia Beach community.
