Have you heard about Independents Week? It’s a national movement that runs from July 1st–7th each year to promote the idea of shopping at local, independently-owned businesses.

This year, WatertownFirst has teamed up with a number of local businesses and organizations to throw the first ever Independents Week celebration in our area, and Maggie’s On the River is kicking it off with a block party on the 2nd!

Plans are still preliminary, but mark your calendar for the first week in July and check out some great coverage on the upcoming event by 7 News.
