All year we’ve been encouraging you to shift your spending towards local vendors and services. This month, we pause to celebrate all the unique and exciting local spots that keep Portland vibrant and independent: celebrate your Independents!
July 1-7 we recognize Independents Week to engage Portland’s local businesses and community members in celebrating the spirit of entrepreneurism and freedom that independent businesses embody. Throughout the entire month of July we will celebrate independent businesses’ contributions to the community–and recognize local residents’ role in shaping our community’s future.
We are joining other local alliances and national partner organizations in supporting Independents. Be sure to take this opportunity to share your favorite spots and support the places that make Portland unique!
