But first things first, what is “Indie Retailer Month”?

Indie Retailer Month is a month long celebration in July that helps support local businesses across the country. These businesses can range from online, brick and mortar or even a local community event. It is so important that the message be heard loud and clear about the positive social and economical impact local businesses have. Here’s a history of Indie Retailer Month!

How are we Sale-a-brating?

Since we <3 our retailers SO much, we are getting the inside scoop from our vendors. During the month, we will be featuring some ways to mix and match wax melt recipes from Bouelvard, merchandising ideas for our fashion vendors, inside looks at accessories and so much more. We can’t tell you all of it. Where’s the fun in that?

Aside from the new vendor content, there will be a free social media marketing webinar for retailers. Ease of use, the ins and outs, and the best way to use this Instagram for your store will be the hot topic. By the end of the webinar, you will sure to be an Insta-professional! Register here!

GIVEAWAYS! Yes, we are having giveaways during the OneCoast’s Sale-a-bration (July 21-23)! We will be selecting one winner a day for a prize! Could it be you?!
