About Independents’ Day UK
Independents’ Day UK is campaign that independent retailers across sectors and throughout the country can use to promote their own businesses online and in their own communities. We call it a grassroots movement because it needs your active involvement and support. It needs independent retailers to grab it by the scruff of the neck and make it work for their own businesses. If you’re not already on Local e Sourced – please consider joining us. It is currently free, so you’ve got nothing to lose!
