Think Local: Shop Pelham - Did You Know?


“Supporting our local businesses is critical to maintaining the distinctive small town character of the Town of Pelham” explains newly elected PBA president, John Wink, “it’s where we shop, where we eat, and where we have fun, and our local businesses make our community home”.

The feedback from the “Pelham Think Local” campaign indicated that, while the majority of consumers were interested in shopping locally, many also believed that selection was limited, prices were higher and that accessibility was less convenient.

PBA Communications Chair Bryan Capporicci says “We are planning on de-bunking some local shopping “myth-busting”.  I am fairly new to this community and I am amazed by the depth of products and services that we have available here. Our committee has come up with some great educational tools via our local papers, websites, Facebook and even YouTube to broaden the knowledge about our local businesses.”

Another focus of the “Did You Know” campaign is to encourage support of the businesses in the construction areas during the revitalization of Downtown Fonthill. “These businesses have supported the community, and now it is our time to support them”, adds Caporicci.

The driving force behind the campaign will be the special “Did You Know” section of the Pelham Business Association website, which can be found at Also look out for weekly articles in the Voice of Pelham, the Pelham News,, our Facebook page ( and our YouTube page (
