Independent Retailer Month: Join in on the Local Love

July is Independent Retailer Month and we want to celebrate by doing something special each week of July! We've signed up with who help make finding local stores all over the country super easy. Shopping locally is a huge benefit to the community. There are many different reasons to celebrate Independent Retailers. A dollar spent at an independent retailer is usually spent 6 to 15 times before it leaves the community. From $1, you create $5 to $14 in value within that community. Shopping with an independent retailer supports local traders, their suppliers and the people they depend on to run their businesses. The "Buy Local Western North Carolina" organizations has listed many reasons why shopping local is beneficial and why local and state governments would want to support small businesses within their community. A few of those reasons are: 
  • Local businesses that expand create jobs at all pay levels and those that expand out of state bring outside dollars into the community. 
  • Local businesses tend to give back to more community causes and support local media. 
  • Local businesses often specialize in their craft, creating better customer service.

While you are out this month, show your support and excitement for local shops by checking into our facebook page, tagging us on social media, or by using #cloverlove on Instagram!
Here's a layout on what you can look forward to at Red Clover in the weeks to come! Be sure to join our mailing list for a detailed email of all the specials and events that we'll have going on.
Week of July 6-12: We're giving you exclusive behind the scenes sneak peaks all week long! You can expect to see photos of what daily activities (and fun shenanigans!) go on to keep the store and website running smooth. Be sure to watch our video at the bottom of this blog.
Week of July 13-19: This week is all about YOU, our customers! Each day we'll do something to show how much we appreciate our Customers. One day we'll have special treats in store (delicious locally made cookies and refreshing beverages-YUM!). And make sure you keep up with our Social Media, because we'll be letting you know of a special sale day too! A few other things to be on the lookout for are a free gift with purchase day and a chance to win a private shopping party with friends. 
Week of July 20-26: We're giving back to our community by supporting and raising awareness for a local charity all week long. We will be doing a CLOTHES DRIVE for Blessingdales Thrift Stores by The Living Vine. We encourage our customers to get involved and please bring in gently used clothing item/items to donate and in return we'll give you a coupon that can be used in our shop.
Week of July 27-31: This week we are giving tribute to all the employees that make running our business possible! We'll be introducing them via social media and letting you guys know a little bit about why we love them so much.
We can't wait for the upcoming month's activities! Don't forget to check your email and our social media pages for all the excitement.
