State & WTPL Join Forces on “Shop & Buy NH” Effort

“Shop local and buy local” is the message being spread by the State of New Hampshire and WTPL 107.7 FM who announced today that they’re joining forces on a new initiative to highlight the positive effects of local spending on the economy.

During the first week of February, radio listeners will hear a special public service announcement from Governor John Lynch and New Hampshire Department of Resources & Economic Development Commissioner George Bald urging that citizens shop and buy local in order to stimulate the local economy, build stronger communities and generate job creation. The state’s merchants will also be offering special sales to both honor existing customers and create new ones.

“There’s no question that spending locally generates a ripple effect throughout the state,” said Commissioner Bald. “When you’re buying from local merchants and supporting local products, you’re helping to circulate more money in the community you live in. You’re also making an investment in jobs, local infrastructure and business growth.”

WTPL’s “New Hampshire Today” afternoon program will feature many local businesses in an effort to introduce listeners to the merchants and innovative products that serve as the backbone of the state’s economy.

“New Hampshire is home to some of the most creative and pioneering entrepreneurs in the nation,” said “New Hampshire Today” host Jack Heath. “It’s time to celebrate the businesses which have chosen to make our great state their home and to do our part to help New Hampshire outpace the rest of the nation in terms of economic growth.”

The initiative will kick off on Monday morning, February 1st with a live broadcast of the NH Wake-Up Show from the Barley House in downtown Concord. To listen live, check out 107.7 FM between 7-10 a.m. or visit www.wtplfm.com.
