Independents Week

It's right around the corner—Independents Week! Time to celebrate all the great locally-owned independent businesses in your city.

A few goings-on we've heard about so far:

Octavia Books in New Orleans, Louisiana, along with NOLA independent business alliance Stay Local, are celebrating all week. They're kicking things off with a showing of Independent America: Rising from the Ruins, a documentary about how vital independents have been in rebuilding New Orleans. Check for more on the week's events.

Next Page Bookstore and the Summit Independent Business Alliance in Frisco, Colorado are planning a countywide celebration with over 100 indie businesses.

Quail Ridge Books of Raleigh, North Carolina, along with Shop Local Raleigh are planning huge events for Independents Week, and spreading the word online. Check out Shop Local Raleigh on Facebook and Twitter.
