31 December, 2017

From November 1 to December 31 each year, Seacoast Local works extra hard to ensure your spending matches the community values you support. To make our “think local first” message stronger, we helped launch the Shift Your Shopping campaign. This national movement encourages citizens to support job creation and economic growth through their holiday purchases at locally owned and independent businesses.

Like our Plaid Friday campaign, Shift Your Shopping combines the efforts of more than 140 local business alliances nationally. This year, we’ve partnered with Monadnock Buy Local to launch the first-ever NH statewide campaign, representing more than 2,000 businesses right here in NH.

Why support local? 

Read more about the difference this can make in NH at the Monadnock Region Indie Impact Study and our Top 10 Reasons to Buy Local.

Want community experiences? Discover all kinds of community fairs, festivals and cultural events continuing throughout the month at www.portsmouthnh.com.

The campaign seeks to build an annual tradition that strengthens local economies, expands employment, nurtures a sense of community, and provides a more relaxed, fun, and rewarding gift-buying experience.

Please join us by voting with your dollars this holiday season.  In turn, we will create a true holiday gift to our community that will keep on giving throughout the New Year.
