Exciting News on the Expansion-Front!!! We are nearly ready to expand our existing business to include ALL SIX NEW ENGLAND STATES!!! Our new venture will be known as Only In New England (clever, huh?) and we anticipate launching the website August 1st. This is truly an amazing time at Only In Rhode Island and we just can't wait to offer our amazing RI stuff all over New England, and to bring you incredible products from all over the region!!

To get us where we want to be in our new venture, we have applied for a grant with Chase Bank. They are sponsoring a program called Mission Small Business and will award $250,000 each to 12 different small businesses. As you might imagine, we very much want to receive this grant and believe our qualifications are unimpeachable, in that our expansion will allow significant growth for local companies, artists, and artisans throughout New England.

To complete our registration, Chase requires that we receive 250 "votes" on facebook from our supporters. We hope you will click on the attached link and vote for Only In Rhode Island in the Mission Small Business program. the deadline is June 30th, so there's no time to waste!!!
