Mission Statement The Las Vegas Locally Owned Merchants Alliance was formed to identify and promote locally owned independent retail businesses in Las Vegas.
Our goal is to educate and inform residents of and visitors to Las Vegas of the positive economic impact on the community and the value to the individual of shopping at independent retailers first. We also encourage VegasLOMA members to choose other locally owned businesses as vendors, and explore opportunities for cross promotions and marketing partnerships.Who We Are VegasLOMA was co-founded by Raymond Nisi, owner of Double Helix Wine. Nisi relocated his family from New York to Las Vegas in 2007 to open Double Helix Wine & Whiskey Bar in The Palazzo. He recently opened a second location, Double Helix Wine & Whiskey Lounge in Town Square.
During efforts to develop cross-promotions with other locally-owned businesses, Nisi recognized a lack of unity between locally owned businesses, a lack of awareness by members of the Las Vegas community about which businesses are locally-owned -- and the critical importance of supporting those businesses to develop a local culture with distinct character.
VegasLOMA is currently seeking members representing a wide range of retail and service
categories. While we are concerned about
the negative economic effects of big-box stores and national chains, we have a
more positive story to tell: locally
owned businesses recirculate more money in the local economy than national
chains. So not only are our businesses
competitive, quirky, friendly, unique, and creative, we better support the
