State Launches “My Local MA” to Support Small & Local Businesses:

Governor Charlie Baker and Lt. Governor Karyn Polito took a tour of RAM member, Wheelworks, in Belmont, last week to promote the Sales Tax Holiday weekend and to announce the launch of an effort to encourage residents to support their local economies by shopping at local Massachusetts businesses and attractions, safely – in person, online, and using curbside pickup or takeout.
The “My Local MA” campaign kicked off on August 29-30 with the Sales Tax Holiday, and will run through the holiday shopping season in December.  The campaign was developed by the MA Office of Travel and Tourism (MOTT) to showcase MA businesses and attractions – from family owned-restaurants to artisan boutiques to museums – that are a critical part of the Commonwealth’s economy.
“RAM is thrilled to have the state as a partner in promoting our local retailers, restaurants and Main Streets,” said RAM President Jon Hurst.
The campaign, found at, will also include print, broadcast, billboard and digital ads, and social media. All RAM members are encouraged to visit the site and to follow along and cross promote the effort through social media – and don’t forget to use the RAM sponsored #BuyinMA hashtag!
