Independents Week (Shop Local)


  • The American Independent Business Alliance (AMIBA) has dubbed the first week of July "Independents Week," a chance to celebrate local independent businesses. (

    Why not take this opportunity to work with your Chamber of Commerce, area merchants' associations, and individual business owners to create a shop local celebration in your community, that could extend through the summer?  Offer rewards and discounts for shopping locally and remind people in the community of all the ways that shopping local first benefits them.

    For more information about fully-produced "Shop Local First!" messages that you can air year-round, click here:

    GBS also offers Salute to Our Small Businesses, a set of features that pay tribute to our hard-working businesspeople and the important role they play in our communities and the nation’s economy. We created it as a way to honor small businesses and their resilience, and it’s a good feature for a larger entity such as a law firm, chamber of commerce, bank, office supplies store, etc., to sponsor. (One of our clients in Virginia sold sponsorship to his local Congressman - great idea!). Demo & details here:
