MERCHANTS: Independents Month July 2018

July is Independents Month.

Ever since the Boston Tea Party, independent businesses have been essential to our liberty and democracy. 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 sixth year of Independents Month, GO LOCAL offers two ways for business members to participate in 2018:

  • FREE branding tools to let your spirit of red, white and blue really fly.
  • A special media package to boost your reach in July. By promoting your business with other members under the umbrella of the GO LOCAL brand, the promotional value for each participant is even stronger. See bottom of this page for this year's offer. We price all media competitively with our co-op marketing advantage.
