Independent merchants have undoubtedly played a huge role in leading the fast-paced growth of the country, as have other independent businesses. They boost the economy, create jobs and ultimately engage with the community. With some independent merchants experiencing COVID related challenges, independents need the support from their local communities now more than ever.
To this end, as part of the NMBS #LoveIndependents campaign, we want to show our gratitude and support to independent merchants by sharing our top 3 reasons to love independent merchants.
Reach the Heart
Find the Passion
Independent merchants maintain their focus on reviewing and constantly improving services to satisfy loyal customers. As a result of providing fantastic service and solutions, you will usually find a family of tradespeople using the same independent for decades. In most cases, tradespeople view their independent as their one and only supplier or stockist and feel disloyal going elsewhere.
Know the Love
By working with independent merchants, you can have the experience of working together for mutual growth and prosperity. Similarly, independents have a great interaction with their customers. By supporting your local independent regularly as a customer, you can build a relationship and make your shopping experience more enjoyable.
