When your membership application is approved, we will deliver a campaign kit with materials that you can use to help spread the word, including window decals for business members. We will also add your listing to our online directory.

Although we support independent businesses throughout Maine, because of our limited resources and capacity, the Portland Buy Local Campaign is currently limited to businesses located in the city of Portland. If you have a business elsewhere, we encourage you to start a similar initiative in your community. For how-to resources and advice, please see Starting a Buy Local Campaign in Your Community.

Thank you sustaining members!
