Locals love Renton! Those of us who live here rave about safe, diverse neighborhoods, great restaurants, lots of free parking, and lack of traffic jams. Only the uninformed still refer to Renton in terms of the old, outdated, unflattering reputation. Rely On Renton is about supporting the city that we love through patronizing it’s businesses, entertainment, and arts programs, and volunteering to make our community a better place to live, work and play.
The Rely On Renton blog is part of the RelyLocal Renton campaign: a community campaign to improve our local economy by supporting our small, locally owned businesses thereby keeping more money circulating in Renton’s economy.

About Ian and Amanda Liddle
This blog is written by Ian and Amanda Liddle. The couple have lived in the Renton/ Newcastle area most of their lives. When they met and married in 2010, they had a common goal of living, working, playing, and serving in a strong, vibrant community. They believe a large part of the success of a community is dependent on the strength of their small businesses.
Having both been small business owners, they understand the difficulties that accompany owning a small business. They were seeking more ways to help out the little guy when they launched the Renton / Newcastle RelyLocal campaign in August 2012. As a community campaign, the Rely On Renton needs your support. They are asking consumers, citizens of Renton, to pledge to shift $20 of their monthly spending budget to shop at small, locally owned businesses rather than online and big box stores like Amazon, Walmart, Costco, Sam’s Club, etc. As for businesses, they are asking owners to list their business on the www.relyonrenton.com local business directory, and to seek ways that they can source supplies and services with other Renton / Newcastle businesses to keep our hard-earned money in our city.
