BERKELEY HEIGHTS, NJ - July is Independent Retailer Month. Throughout a range of in-store, online and community events and promotions, Independent Retailer Month encourages consumers to shop at independent retailers; highlighting their positive social and economic impact – local, nationally and globally.

Independent retailers are the backbone of many communities, the mom and pop shops adding diversity along the main streets.

Reasons to Celebrate Independent Retailers
A dollar spent at an independent retailer is usually spent six to 15 times before it leaves the community. From $1, you create $5 to $14 in value within that community. Shopping with an independent retailer supports local traders, their suppliers and the people they depend on to run their businesses. Buying from an independent retailer boosts the local economy, rebuilding confidence in the community, enabling local businesses to prosper and grow.

When you spend $1 at a national chain store, 80 percent of the money leaves town immediately according to IndependentRetailerMonth.com. When you shop with your local independent retailers you are doing your bit to keep your community ‘open for business’.
