Independent’s Week

July 22, 2008 at 4:47 pm Leave a comment

We learned something from our new association with the Tampa Independent Business Alliance (T.I.B.A.).  They, along with other chapters of the American Independent Business Alliance and other organizations are celebrating Independent’s Week this week.

Independent’s Week is a celebration of independent businesses across the country; but more importantly, a challenge to us all to remember the importance of independent businesses within our own communities.  As part of Independent’s Week, I encourage you to participate in the Indie Challenge to see how much of your purchasing for this week you can do with local independent businesses.

If you read recent WOMbeat! blog entry about “Why Shop Locally?”, you saw some awesome statistics regarding the economic impact local businesses have.  In short, local business ARE the economy.

As friends and users of WOMbeat!, I’d like to encourage all of you to patronize local businesses not only this week, but every week.
