Portland Buy Local can reach only so many people through our own advertising and outreach. The success of this campaign really depends on you. We encourage you to talk to your customers, colleagues, friends, and neighbors about the importance of choosing locally owned, independent businesses.
To help, we’ve assembled information in the Why Buy Local section of this site about the economic, community, and environmental benefits of choosing locally owned businesses, and we’ve created a variety of materials that you can display and distribute.
Selling Portland Buy Local t-shirts is a terrific way to get the message out, and they make great work apparel and gifts for staff. T-shirts are currently available at several retailers around town. Members receive email notice when there’s an opportunity to place a wholesale order.
Member businesses and organizations can contact us to request additional posters and supplies of our countertop thank-you cards.
