What is Local or Independent?

To participate in Portland Buy Local and be included in the online directory, a business or organization must be locally owned and independent. We define these terms as follows:

Locally owned

Locally owned means the business is privately held and located within Portland City Limits. Businesses and community based non-profits are eligible, but not government units. The business must be registered in Maine with no corporate headquarters outside the state.

Independent

Independent means the owner or owners have full decision-making authority over the business in regards to merchandise, trademark, architecture, and decor. The business may include employee-, community-, and cooperatively-owned businesses.
