New Mexico MainStreet’s Choose MainStreet social media campaign kicked off in September 2020. The goal of this campaign was to encourage New Mexicans to shop and eat (or order take-out) at their local MainStreet businesses. With the upcoming holiday shopping season and the COVID-19 economic recovery under way, it’s a great time to remind New Mexicans why MainStreet small businesses are vital to the community and local economy.

This initiative encourages shoppers to support local businesses in their MainStreet district and promotes the valuable MainStreet and Arts & Cultural districts throughout the state.

Every week for the rest of the year, a new graphic was posted on our Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram profiles to promote the ♥ of local.

Please share these graphics with your communities to remind them to shop local!
