Independence WeekIndependents Week

Independents Week (July 1-7) is an annual campaign, encompassing July 4, that engages local independent businesses and citizens in celebrating entrepreneurial spirit and the freedom our local businesses embody. Independents Week also is an occasion to recognize small businesses’ contributions to the community–and to affirm citizens’ role in shaping their community’s future.

The Indie Challenge



The Indie Challenge is to try fulfilling all of one’s needs at local independent businesses for the week. Challenge yourself and your customers for one week in July to shop local and independent for the entire week! Let’s all be part of the #IndieChallenge and let’s see what kind of impact we can make in our community and the long term changes we can make in how consumers choose to spend their money.

Help us help you! Send us your special offers, promotions, hours… anything you’re doing next week so we can push it out and help promote your business!
