Next week starts Seacoast Local's Buy Local Week. Here's a blurb from Kelly Cioe President, Board of Directors for Seacoast Local:
Also, you can shop online at NH Made anytime and pick up nice gifts from all different catergories:
Don't forget to get Buy Local Week in your calendars. Come out and support your neighbors.
In an effort to give our local economy a much-needed boost this holiday season, towns throughout the Seacoast officially proclaim "Buy Local Week" Nov. 30 through Dec. 6. Tell everyone, so we can really make a difference!
Buy Local Week encourages shoppers to "Shift Your Shopping" and seek out local businesses during the biggest retail shopping week of the year.
Dollars spent at locally owned, independent businesses recirculate up to twice as much in our community compared to dollars spent at non-locally owned businesses. That means each dollar that Seacoast residents shift to local independents during the holiday season turns into more local people getting a paycheck, paying their mortgage, and buying what they need at other businesses across our community.
