“Support local” isn’t a catchphrase for us; it’s a way of life

We’re enthusiastically dedicated to supporting our Maine businesses and brands every chance we get. We’re proud to have a commitment to serve at least 75% local and independent clients or customers. And, after these past couple years, our purpose to help our neighbors has never been so clear. Our local businesses needed to be online to survive, but we wanted more for them. We’re dedicated to helping Maine businesses thrive online, now and in the future.
