MERCHANTS: Independents Month July 2017

July is Independents Month.

Join with communities across the nation and celebrate the freedoms and opportunities independent businesses provide.  Here in Sonoma County, we're asking all residents and visitors to support our independent businesses throughout July.


Now in its fifth year for Independents Month, GO LOCAL offers two ways for members to participate:

  • A special media package to boost your reach in July. A multimedia presence with other members around the GO LOCAL brand concentrates the promotional value for each participant.
  • Marketing assets free for all members to use, designed by Zack Darling Creative Associates (ZDCA) to let their red, white and blue really fly.
