Local Business Update: 2020 Shop Indie Local Planning

June 21, 2020 10:00 AM | TLC Monadnock (Administrator)

Now, more than ever, small businesses need to work together.

With so much uncertainty around the long-term impacts of COVID-19 on each of our businesses and what this year's holiday shopping season will look like, we will start planning now for this year's Shop Indie Local efforts (Plaid Friday, Cider Monday, Small Business Saturday and more). 

Please reach out to us with new ideas for how we can better come together to support each other this holiday season.


Yours locally,

New this Year: Earn Sponsorship Credits

Instead of asking you for Shop Indie Local sponsorships in the form of just cash this year, we're pitching a different option -- one that we hope will be a win-win-win.

Here's how it will work:

  • Your business offers up rewards (products or services) that we will use to drive support for TLC Monadnock crowdfunding campaigns this summer and fall.
  • As your rewards are claimed, you receive "credit" towards our sponsorship levels (see below).
  • You'll receive the retail value, in the form of sponsorship credits, for any of your rewards that are claimed.
  • If rewards aren't claimed by November 1, that's okay. These unclaimed products and services are returned to you.

We will highlight your rewards like this:

We will feature all rewards on an online marketplace like this:
