'Tis the Season...To Buy Local


Did you know that over 50% of money spent at local retailers will stay in the community?


It may be the most wonderful time of the year, but many local retailers continue to struggle with the challenges presented by the COVID-19 pandemic.


How can you help?


Buy local this holiday season! Skip the lines at major retailers and support a small local shop. Buy your holiday roast from a local farm. Pick-up a gift certificate for your favorites service provider - the options are endless.


Downtown Bangor is home to over 40 shops with everything from daily essentials to the perfect holiday gift! Many of these local businesses are offering online shopping and curbside pick-up for those still cautious about hitting the shops.


Looking for the right time to hit the shops? Downtown Bangor is hosting it's annual holiday tree lighting ceremony on December 3 starting at 4 p.m. Celebrate the season with a night of festive fun! Shops will stay open to welcome shoppers after the tree lighting and the restaurants of West Market Square will be ready to serve you up cozy seasonal favorites.


Happy holidays!
