BaltimoreBcause Issue #1

Welcome to BaltimoreBcause – a new initiative we’ve formed with Mindgrub to highlight local Baltimore businesses. 

BaltimoreBcause will help you discover the great local retailers who sell apparel and goodies for your home.
Through BaltimoreBcause, you can also show your support of our city’s Black-owned businesses, many of which we’ll showcase.

We’ll also feature local fashionistas and fashion purchased right here in Baltimore called “Bought in Baltimore.”

Buy Baltimore. Bcause.
