114 Businesses Join ‘Buy Local’ Campaign
One hundred fourteen businesses in Portland have joined Portland’s Buy Local initiative in less than three weeks, according to organizers of the movement.
The group is planning a major holiday campaign this fall to encourage people to shop locally-owned businesses. They are also going to hold a Meet & Greet event on Monday, Aug. 7th, 6:00-8:00 p.m. at Cafe at Pat's (above Pat's Meat Market on Stevens Avenue.) The group is also producing tote bags and tee shirts to promote its message.
