Take the Independents Week Challenge! 

Wed., July 1 and Tue., July 7 2009

July 1-7 is National Independents Week!

Celebrate the local, independent businesses that make America great. Buy Local Berkeley invites you to take the Independents Week Challenge: meet all your needs from July 1 - 7 exclusively at locally owned, independent Berkeley businesses.

Supporting independents makes a real difference. Indies spend 58% more in their local communities at other local businesses and charities than nationally owned chains do. So, when we buy from cool, indie businesses we are helping our friends and neighbors keep their jobs and nurturing our local economy.

Take the challenge today!
