Holiday shopping? Think Local First!

Small Business Saturday is November 26! Support our Upper Valley economy by visiting one of our many locally owned small businesses to kick off the holiday shopping season.

Shopping at locally owned businesses is a great way to support our community! Three times the amount of money stays in the Upper Valley if you purchase from locally owned businesses instead of national chains. The economic impact of keeping it local is multiplied as the money circulates throughout the region and strengthens our communities.

Find places to do your local shopping and giving in our Local First Alliance Member Directory, which includes stores, restaurants, banks, markets, and more.
