Celebrate National Independent Retailers Week

National Independent Retailers WeekThe week of July 19 – 25th is the national celebration of independent retailers week. This event is dedicated to the mom and pop stores that are the bedrock of our local communities.

How Can You Celebrate Independent Retailers Week?

1) Contact your local chamber of commerce or merchants association. These organizations have the clout to organize and promote the event to the general public.

2) Notify your local newspaper and other media. Let them know about the benefits to the local economy when people shop with independent businesses.

3) Spread the word to other local business owners. Pool together your resources, and encourage customers to tell others about this event.

4) Offer a new daily promotion to customers within a different city zip code. If your business is located in a rural setting, offer a new daily promotion to people within different townships.
