Local Businesses Offer Discounts for ‘Indie Week’

“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.
