Independents' Day just weeks away

Posted on in Business News, Cycles News, Creative News, Outdoor News

Tuesday 4th June marked one month to go to Independents' Day.

Organised by the National Skills Academy for Retail, and now in its third year, Independents' Day is a national campaign, sponsored by Mondelez International which aims to give a voice to the UK's independent retailers.

The Independents' Day campaign has joined forces with Independent Retailer Month, which runs throughout July, and so Independents' Day will kick start a whole month of celebration of Independent Retail, that aims to re-connect local people with local traders for the benefit of the whole community. The campaign has also gained the support of thirteen trade associations, including ActSmart and the Association of Cycle Traders.

Get Involved

Independents' Day is a great opportunity to help drive shoppers into your independent business.

To help you get the most out of independents Day why not promote it in store with campaign posters, or online with web banners, or even run your own events in conjunction with other indie retailers in your area?

NSA for retail can provide you with everything you need, including:

• Campaign posters
• Campaign logo
• Web button and banners
• Press release template
