Independent Retailer Month 2019

July is Independent Retailer Month, and the Quill is sponsoring a “Shop Indie’’ campaign to help local merchants bring customers into their businesses during the month and highlight the role local independent retailers play in their community.

Shop Indie is short for “shop your independent retailers.” The promotion includes over $1,200 in cash and prizes available to customers. First, second and third place winners will be selected from entries. Advertisements from participating merchants are on pages 5 through 7 in today’s edition, with a list of prizes to be awarded on page 7.

A canister will be placed on the counter at participating businesses, and the customers can put their entry in the container as many times as they wish. The deadline to enter is July 31.

Businesses will receive a poster for their storefront windows and an entry container for their counters. Each participating business’ name and address will be included in a Quill ad periodically during July as a shopping reminder.

For more information call an advertising representative at the Quill at 256-9191, or go to
