New London Local First is a network of locally owned, independent businesses formed in 2007 to build a strong New London economy and a vibrant community.

We do this by:

  • Organizing a New London Local First campaign that raises the awareness of consumers, businesses, and government agencies regarding the benefits of purchasing from locally owned, independent businesses.
  • Bringing together locally owned, independent businesses for mutual benefit and networking opportunities.
  • Supporting New London ordinances, regulations and policies that promote locally owned, independent businesses.
  • Collaborating with other organizations that promote and advance locally owned, independent businesses.

New London Local First, is an affiliate of the Sustainable Business Network of Greater Boston , a 501(c) 3 non-profit, tax-exempt organization. SBN is part of the Business Alliance for Local Living Economies , which has more than 60 Local First campaigns across the U.S. and Canada.
