"Love What's Local"
 Kick Off on Saturday!

Join us for the Kick Off Event for "Love What's Local - Greater Newburyport"

The Greater Newburyport Chamber of Commerce & Industry along with its retail, restaurant and service members and the City of Newburyport are pleased to announce a new initiative in an effort to continue to shine a light on the importance of supporting locally owned businesses in the greater Newburyport area. 

According to a recent study from Sustainable Seattle, buying locally keeps money circulating closer to where you spend it. This creates a ripple effect as those businesses and their employees spend their money locally. For every $1 spent at a local business, 45 cents is reinvested locally.

Love What's Local - Greater Newburyport will officially kick off on Saturday, June 10 at 3 PM as Mayor Donna Holaday, Senator Kathleen O'Connor Ives, Representative James Kelcourse along with local business owners cut the ribbon and deliver new Love What's Local - Greater Newburyport decals for business owners. Businesses are encouraged to offer special incentives, discounts, refreshments and raffles until 6 PM that day. 

Residents and visitors alike are encouraged to look for the bold, bright, red Love What's Local stickers for participating businesses. 
From the Blog
Interested in guest blogging?  Email the Marketing Department.

Sapphire, whether from Sri Lanka, Madagascar, Thailand, Africa, or Montana US, all have the same chemical composition - they're all corundums.  The difference lies in their growing environments and the trace elements present during their formation.

Quality characteristics such as color and saturation, sparkle or "life", cut and color modifiers help us determine a sapphire's country of origin. Traveling to the source, like we have done in Sri Lanka, Thailand, Madagascar, and Africa, has allowed us to understand the sapphire markets intimately and learn from the dealers themselves where these stones come from.
