Independents’ Day 2011

In Industry News On

On 4th July 2011, the public was encouraged to buy at least one item from their local, independent shop to keep their high street alive. Skillsmart Retail and the National Skills Academy for Retail have teamed up with independent retailers and trade associations around the UK, including the Association of Town Centre Management and British Independent Retailers Association, to celebrate diversity on the high street.

Small retail businesses help to create a strong community around town centres and high streets but many are struggling to compete in today’s tough retail landscape. Independents’ Day is a chance for the public to show their appreciation and support for local retailers.

Independents’ Day also celebrates the skills behind the shop front, highlighting the wide range of expertise that retailers need to run a successful business.
