Why Shop Indie Week?
MySTORE, the independent retailer division of Retail Council of Canada, is pleased to pay tribute to Canada’s proud independent retailers during Small Business Month, with the introduction of Shop Indie Week, October 18 – 25, 2014. Independent retailers are invited to join the campaign to promote and celebrate Shop Indie Week in their communities:
MySTORE will aggressively promote Shop Indie Week with media releases, social media and communications to encourage Canadian consumers to support independent retailers during Shop Indie Week. Our goal is to raise awareness of the vital importance and contribution of independent retailers in advance of Black Friday, Small Business Saturday, Cyber Monday and the holiday shopping season.
