In recognition of National Independents Week, Local First Arizona will honor locally owned and independent businesses across the state from June 29 through July 6.

The nationwide Independents Week campaign, coordinated by the American Independent Business Alliance and known as “Indie Week,” takes place during the week of Independence Day with the purpose of enlightening consumers to the importance of supporting local businesses.

“Arizona’s independent business community is the backbone of our local economy and the driving force behind what makes us proud to call Arizona home,” says Kimber Lanning, director of Local First Arizona. “Independents Week is our way of drawing attention to the important role independent businesses play in our daily lives.”

This year’s event will feature the return of the Golden Coupon, featuring a 20-percent off savings from hundreds of locally owned establishments including auto repairs, home furnishing stores, boutiques, florists, restaurants, yoga studios and nurseries. There also will be an online contest with great prizes, fun events with local businesses across the state, a pub crawl, and more.
