Independent's Day - July 4th 2011


What is Independents’ Day?

Skillsmart Retail and the National Skills Academy for Retail are teaming up with local  retailers across the country on 4th July to celebrate Independents’ Day. 

The public will be encouraged to buy at least one item from a local independent retailer and celebrate diversity on the high street. We’ve teamed up with trade associations such as the NFRN and Association of Town Centre Management, along with national, local and trade press to make sure the campaign is a success. 

Supporting independent retailers

We will also champion the skills great independent retailers have and show the public that their local shopkeeper is not only a vital service, but someone who wears many hats; they are the accountant, sales assistant, buyer and often everything in-between.

How can I get involved?

  • Download the Independents’ Day poster and put it in your window to get the message out to local shoppers
  • If you have a website, upload the Independents’ Day banner to promote the event
  • Visit and Like us on facebook



The sky is the limit: if you are planning to do something exciting in your local area or to make a splash in your window, the press release template is there to help you tell your local newspaper all about it. Don’t forget to let us know too!


Visit the Skillsmart Retail website for full details and download your posters.
