“Indie Week,” a week-long campaign to support local businesses, starts tomorrow. Laura Paola from the Rhode Island Foundation and Julie Tremaine from Providence Monthly joined the Rhode Show to tell us about the campaign.
From July 1 to July 7, more than 50 local businesses will be offering special discounts and promotions. The campaign, part of Buy Local RI, an initiative of the Rhode Island Foundation, hopes to support independently-owned businesses as part of Independence Day celebrations.
Shoppers can visit buylocalri.org to download the Indie Week coupon, which is valid for deals at any of the participating stores and restaurants,and to see the full list of participating stores and restaurants. Businesses looking to join in can also visit the website to sign up.
