New York—Independent Retailer Month, a promotional campaign that dedicates July to celebrate and support independent retailers across the country, returns for another year to encourage consumers to stimulate their local economy by shopping at independent retailers.
Independent Retailer Month connects consumers and communities to local independent retailers throughout a range of in-store, online and community events and promotions reminding them of the benefits of shopping independent.
The promotional campaign engages independent retailer associations, small business organizations and retail thought leaders to demonstrate the importance of independent retail to the local, national and global economy.
Since independent retailers are the backbone of communities, mom and pop shops add diversity along the main street. Independent Retailer Month strives to bring people together as a celebration for the independent retailers in our local communities that help build the economy.
Indie Retailer Month offers a variety of resources and ideas for retailers and community organizations to collectively impact community growth. Everybody is welcome to engage fully in the July activities ranging from independent retailers hosting in-store events and exclusive promotions to Chambers of Commerce and Business Improvement Districts rallying their communities to shop locally.
