July is Independent Retailer Month. It is a world-wide campaign to encourage consumers to shop at independent retailers; highlighting their positive social and economic impact – locally, nationally and globally.
Local business generates 70% more local economic activity per square foot than big box retailers.
Independent retailers are a unique and critical part of the local economy. Independent retailers return 46.9% of all revenue to their local economy, while only six cents of every dollar spent at a big box retailer stays in the area.
Shop Small, Shop Local, Shop Independent.
