We hope you’ll show them support in July, Independent Retailer Month, by visiting the North Norfolk Coast and particularly our shops in Burnham Deepdale.
Remember that an independent retailer is not just for July, but for all year and all our shops are open throughout the year.
Support Your Local Community
As you may know, buying from an Independent business typically guarantees you a more unique, personal experience. What you may not realise is that, on average, 50p - 70p of every pound you spend in a local independent shop goes back into your local community, whereas with the corporate multiples this figure is only around 5p.
If you are looking for a bit of indulgence at this celebratory time of year, if you are seeking more unusual gifts, unique outfits, delicious treats or special social occasions, then you’ll be bound to find what you want when you explore your local independents and can support your local community at the same time.
What is Independent Retailer Month
In case you are wondering what ’Independent Retailer Month’ is all about, it’s a nationwide celebration of independent retail throughout July. The purpose is to encourage shoppers, like you, to explore your local, independent traders, invest in your local community and to make it a thoroughly enjoyable experience!
Since its UK Launch in July 2011, Independent Retailer Month, which runs throughout July, has grown rapidly, engaging 1000s of retailers and consumer-facing businesses UK-wide. It highlights the important role that smaller, independent retailers play in the communities they serve, the local economy they contribute to, and in the retail sector as a whole.
By encouraging independent retailers, groups of retailers, and even whole towns to create fun and engaging promotions, activities and events during the month of July, the campaign succeeds in tackling the very real issue of declining footfall in towns and village centres.
Independent Retailer Month UK is led by Clare Rayner, The Retail Champion,
who is founder of the year-round ’Support for Independent Retail’ campaign:
