Independents Week is a nationwide campaign recognizing the spirit of entrepreneurship of local independent businesses and community leaders. West Chester is joining with hundreds of other communities across the nation to celebrate the freedoms and opportunities independent businesses provide.
The West Chester BID hopes that you use this as an occasion to recognize and thank your favorite home-owned businesses for the time, talent, goods, services, and contributions to the community they have made. Further, let’s all show appreciation to our local residents who are volunteering their valuable time to shape our community’s future.
Independents Week is supported by the Pennsylvania Downtown Center, a statewide resource for communities like West Chester and by the American Independent Business Alliance, a non-profit organization helping communities launch and successfully operate a local Independent Business Alliance. Programs such as buy local campaigns, pro-local policies, and other initiatives to support local entrepreneurs and vibrant local economies come from these organizations.
