Celebrate Independent Retailer Month in July

Independent Retailer Month is a campaign that runs annually throughout July to highlight the important role smaller, local, independent retailers play in the communities they serve, the local economy they contribute to, and in the retail sector as a whole.

Independent traders are vital to our local communities and economies. Stats show that for every £1 spent with a local, independent business, between 50p-70p is reinvested into that local economy. Compared to shopping online or out-of-town, which although may save a little time or a little money, sees only 5p trickle back into the local economy.

Independent Retailer Month in the UK has 3 aims:

  • To encourage all those who live in the local area to visit their nearby towns and villages, to explore the local, independent businesses in their community and to rediscover what their place has to offer. To vote with their feet, and with their wallets, if they really do care about having a sustainable, thriving high street!
  • To encourage independent consumer-facing businesses in towns and village centres to create fun, engaging activities and events throughout July. To focus on attracting the local community back into the town, high street or village centre. To ensure that consumers have a great experience that will in turn make more people want to come back more often.
  • To encourage product suppliers and all those who serve the independent retail sector to spread the word. Where possible to garner the support from suppliers to enable the retailers to deliver fantastic in-store events and activities, throughout July.
