With an independent spirit that goes back over 150 years, Ogden is the place to start or relocate your small business. The Ogden Downtown Alliance believes a strong, unique and diverse group of locally owned and operated businesses is good for economic vitality. A much higher percentage of money spent within a local economy spent at independently owned businesses tends to remain within the the community.
