Filed Under: Non Profit News, Other

MASHPEE, Mass., April 29,2024 – Mashpee Commons, the Cape’s leading retail, dining and entertainment destination, has partnered with Love Live Local, a nonprofit advocacy organization dedicated to bolstering the regional economy through a vibrant shop local movement.

Mashpee Commons is home to a wide variety of small, independent locally-owned businesses — approximately 70% of its tenant base — including unique gift and home furnishing shops, fashion boutiques, cafés and restaurants, and professional services providers.

As a sponsorship partner of Love Live Local, Mashpee Commons joins an impressive roster of Cape-based organizations whose financial support helps the nonprofit produce festivals, create resource and gift guides, commission economic impact reports and award micro-grants for small businesses to grow and gain a competitive advantage.

“Locally owned small businesses have always been the heart of Mashpee Commons,” said Krysten Kelleher, Marketing Director, Mashpee Commons. “Our philosophy for providing an environment where small businesses can grow and thrive perfectly aligns with Love Live Local and its extensive advocacy efforts.  We look forward to working with Love Live Local to create special events showcasing small businesses at Mashpee Commons and throughout Cape Cod.”

Local businesses contribute to the Cape Cod community on a far greater scale than their corporate competitors, and this knowledge informs all of our work,” says Love Live Local Co-founder and Executive Director Amanda Converse. “The things people love about Cape Cod will not be here if there is not an investment in small business and workforce. By working with Mashpee Commons, we have a powerful and permanent showcase for local businesses to thrive. We look forward to a long and productive evolving partnership with Mashpee Commons.
