Love Yarmouth – A Buy Local Campaign


Today, the Yarmouth & Area Chamber of Commerce is launching a new campaign to encourage businesses, government, organizations and citizens to do business locally.

We have all been affected by this pandemic and there is much uncertainty. But as we look to adapt to a new normal, one thing is very clear; the local economy will depend on all of us as a community to come together and show we LOVE YARMOUTH.

We are encouraging citizens to take the Love Yarmouth pledge, to learn more visit: www.loveyarmouth.com
