Skillsmart Retail and the National Skills Academy for Retail have teamed up with local retailers across the country to celebrate Independents’ Day this 4th July.
Everyone is encouraged to buy at least one item from a local independent retailer and celebrate diversity on the high street. Supporting independent retailers will champion the skills great independent retailers have and show the public that their local shopkeeper is not only a vital service, but someone who wears many hats; they are the accountant, sales assistant, buyer and often everything in-between.
For more information about the campaign, see the Independents' Day Facebook page.
We have a range of services to help people working within retail. Search here for more information.
