Look for the Spring Flag at our members' businesses! DURING COVID 19 MERCHANTS WITH PICK UP/ONLINE SERVICES WILL FLY THE FLAG AND POST DETAILS OF FULFILLMENT METHOD ON THIER STOREFRONT
For more than a decade, the Bar Harbor Merchants Association has promoted Bar Harbor as a Four-Season destination.
The Bar Harbor Merchants Association members fly one of our three different flags when they are open. Not all members are open throughout the entire year, but you can tell when they are by looking for the flag.
During the Covid 19 outbreak members with pick up/online services are flying the flag and posting fulfillment details on their store front.
Think Local First: Thinking locally reduces transportation costs and protects our environment, supports local artists, farms, businesses, producers and organizations, and creates a supportive community and more sustainable economy.
Many of these businesses are fixtures in your community, they donate to class trips, school fundraisers, and countless silent auctions items to local nonprofits.
These businesses are woven into the fabric of your community. Retail stores, Restaurants and Services provide employment to young people in our community, necessary supplies and enjoyment for us all.
Help out these businesses and the limited number of employees they are able to keep at this point.
Let’s help assure that these businesses are able to open again.
During the Covid 19 Outbreak, this Section will not be Updated.
