Local businesses team up to celebrate independents

PHOENIX — Local businesses are having a big ‘independents week’ sale in an effort to boost awareness of.

“It’s basically a weeklong campaign dedicated to support our local businesses during the long summer months,” said Erica Pederson of Local First Arizona of next week’s event.

“That’s the time when many Arizona businesses struggle because many consumers probably think it’s too hot to go out to shop, or they leave the state completely.”

Pederson said a lot of businesses around the state are taking part. “Right now there about 170,” said Pederson, but that number is expected to grow.

Many of the businesses will accept the “golden coupon,” which equals 20 percent off towards purchases, said Pederson.

Coupons are available at Local First AZ’s website.
