#StayLocalMA (#StayLocal2021) is an innovative and collaborative regional approach to explore, dine, and shop locally. Creative Collective created The Stay Local MA Campaign to support your favorite small businesses throughout the community – both in-store and online and keep your money local.
“Small businesses are the lifeblood of most communities and on the North Shore that couldn’t be more true,” said John Andrews (he/him), President and Founder of Creative Collective.
