There’s a new mural in downtown Portland encouraging people to shop locally.

The mural is at the corner of Brown and Free streets.

Portland Downtown said it’s to discourage graffiti and promote small businesses in the area.

The group said the wall was once a graffiti hotspot, and it hopes the new mural will bring vibrancy to the area.
