July is National Independent Retailer Month. The month-long observance offers an opportunity for us to show local small businesses appreciation.
According to the Census Bureau and Small Business Administration, independent retailers employ approximately 51 percent of the U.S. workforce, excluding non-farm workers. In addition, they often supply products and services normally not found in big box stores.
At Lady Bizness, we are celebrating by hosting a month's worth of webinars to build up existing independent retailers and help some new ones start by partnering with Nash Community College Small Center to host webinars every Tuesday & Thursday this month.
