Independent Retailer Month - July

INDEPENDENT RETAILER MONTH

Independent Retailer Month in July offers an opportunity to show your local small business how much you appreciate them.

Independent Retailer Month in July offers an opportunity to show your local small business how much you appreciate them.

Small businesses employ approximately 51 percent of the U.S. non-farm workforce according to the Census Bureau and the Small Business Administration. Nearly all those businesses are independent retailers. The supply products and services we can’t get from big box stores.

When we’re looking for a custom fit or special gift, independent retailers step up to the task providing quality craftsmanship. Many owners and operators work long hours and are dedicated to a successful business. Their success spreads throughout our communities, bringing vibrant local goods to market and tax dollars at home.

HOW TO OBSERVE

During July, head down to Main Street or your town’s retail district and get to know your retailers. You’ll be surprised by what they offer. Whether you’re looking for specialty foods, clothing or books, each offers services we don’t find at larger stores. And if they don’t have it, many are willing to order it if it’s their specialty.

Thank your local retailers and use #IndependentRetailerMonth to share on social media.
