Seacoast Local is devoted to educating the Seacoast about the community benefits of directing more of our money locally, in order to increase our region’s economic, community and environmental strength. Our role is to be the forum where locally owned, independent businesses come together to lead this transformation, within their own business and in partnership with our community.
Join Us This Month
Seacoast Local encourages residents to take job creation and economic concerns into their own hands by exercising their power to strengthen their own local economies. This is an effective strategy all year-round, but especially important at the holidays.
