As an independent retailer, it is often difficult to compete with the larger corporate organisations, but not impossible. It is for us to remember that we do play and important role in the local community by providing products and or services in our local area. The independent retailer site claims that for every £1 we spend locally around 50p to 70p of that money will be recirculated back into the local economy. How cool is that, to think that 50% of the money you spend locally could go straight back into your local community!
The month of July is Independent retailer month and there is lots that you can do, to get involved and promote your business. Check out their “How to get involved” section on the website and see which options will work for you.
If you don’t have retail premises but shop locally then get on their Facebook Page and promote a local business that you use and share the love!

If you would like to be involved with the 10-12 Business Club and the Independent Retail Month, consider visiting or exhibiting at our Pop Up Retail event on the 25th of July at Shinfield Grange. The morning event will see up to 50 stall holders setting up to display and sell their products and services to the local community and build brand awareness.
