Independents Month

Getting consumers to makes purchases in their hometown shops and stores is a great way to boost the local economy and Independent Retailer Month is a campaign designed with the aim of doing just that. It takes place annually to highlight the importance to their community of small, locally owned and operated retailers.

It encourages these types of enterprises to arrange fun events and activities to draw people in and help them understand the benefits of shopping locally. With a myriad of back streets, arcades, and courtyards hiding shops, salons and cafes, take the time to explore Bedford and uncover some treasures!
