Buy Local RI Mission


We strive to build a strong economy and vibrant community by promoting locally owned independent businesses, strengthening our state’s merchant and commercial associations, and providing a unified public resource and voice where businesses and individuals can find and connect to local products and services.

By creating a profile, participating businesses and organizations confirm that they are a locally owned independent business or organization that:

  • Is located in Rhode Island.
  • Is privately, employee, community or cooperatively owned.
  • Is majority-owned by Rhode Island resident(s).
  • The owner(s) have full decision-making authority over the business.
