Indie Retail to Launch New Monthly Newsletter

Posted on in Business News, Cycles News, Creative News, Outdoor News

On Friday 31st January Indie Retail will be launching a monthly newsletter to be sent out to subscribing independent shops.

The newsletter will contain the most recent and relevant news and political updates that independent retailers want to see all in one place. Stories can include heart-warming stories such as The Petersfield Bookshop, an independent bookshop based in Petersfield that experienced an unlikely turnaround in just one night using the power of the internet, to more informative pieces such as nearly half of Buy Now Pay Later customers continuing to be misled.

The political updates, sourced by IRC member ACS, have been refined to the most relevant government updates that could affect your independent business.

The newsletter will also include an eCommerce calendar for the month ahead created by Indie Retail to contain the most relevant holidays for your business. The calendar can be used to keep on top of the vast number of popular holidays and cultural days that can be used to boost revenue and engagement through marketing emails, website, social media and in-store promotion.

To subscribe to the Indie Retail newsletter visit the Indie Retail website homepage.
