Independents’ Day was a great opportunity to show the value of independent shops to the local community and encourage footfall to Brentwood’s local businesses on the 4th of July 2015.
Since People 1st launched the Independents’ Day campaign, they have had fantastic support from local authorities, local enterprise partnerships and business improvement districts, including Brentwood Borough Council.
Many of the Borough’s indie shops and cafés celebrated Independents’ Day with special offers in the 1st July edition of the Brentwood Gazette, a project supported by the Brentwood Borough Renaissance Group.
Crown Street also celebrated Independents’ Day with live entertainment from Libby Holden, another project supported by the Renaissance Group to encourage footfall to the lane’s diverse mix of boutiques and family-run cafés.
Keep it local and show support for small shops, urge Brentwood owners (Brentwood Gazette)
