Campaign Shop Independent

Shopping small isn’t just for Christmas – or a pandemic! Now is the time for us to harness the support for independents that we’ve seen grow over the past year and ensure that it becomes an everyday habit. If every adult in the UK spent £1 a day with small businesses it would add £12billion to local economies.

So, this June was all about Campaign Shop Independent – Summer 2021. During our month-long campaign, we made lots of noise, getting the message out across the country, and have so loved that you’ve been doing the same.
