Just a Card – Indie Week runs from November 21-25
Now in its sixth year, Just A Card – Indie Week encourages people to support, value and buy from independents during the crucial Christmas retail period, and aims to be an antidote to the fast-purchase culture of Black Friday,
Just A Card – Indie Week welcomes everyone to celebrate their own businesses as well as those they love, to showcase their communities and to tell their own stories both on and offline. The week includes the five-day Instagram challenge, which has previously featured across the BBC and beyond, and has seen more than 135,000 people taking part via social media in the past two years alone.
For more information about Just A Card – Indie Week visit justacard.org. Since 2015 the grassroots campaign has been showing the value to both customers and independent businesses of shopping small.
The message is that every sale, however small, even just a card, is the difference between a vibrant creative community or a boarded-up business.
Did you know…17,000+ shops display campaign window stickers; 105,000+ engage via social media, and the campaign is supported by high-profile names including Sir Michael Palin, Natalie Dormer, Lauren Laverne and Nathalie Emmanuel.
