Sussex Indies Day 2012

The 2012 national Campaign featuring UK’s independent retailers has just been launched by Skillsmart Retail, the Sector Skills Council for Retail.

Independents’ Day encourages the public to buy at least buy one thing from their local, independent shop on 4th July 2012.

Never has there been a better time to celebrate than in the very busy Queens Diamond Jubilee Year – Torch Relay around Great Britain – the UK Olympic and Paralympic Games – to give custom to our local independent stores.

Over the next four months, retailers will be encouraged to download the campaign posters from, celebrate the day in their stores and join forces with other retailers and town centre teams to hold special events to capture the public’s imagination.
