CounterBooks becomes a Campaign Supporter for Independent Retailer Month

CounterBooks, the leading online retail accounting system, is pleased to announce it has become an official campaign supporter for Independent Retailer Month.

Independent Retailer Month is a global campaign running throughout July to support the concept of ‘Shop Local’. The campaign’s purpose is to highlight the importance of local independent retailers within their local communities and the economy as whole.

Retailers that sign up to Independent Retailer Month UK will have access to free business tools and advice, with ideas on how they can celebrate Independent Retailer Month UK.

CounterBooks will be helping raise the awareness of Independent Retailer Month throughout the month.

John Roberts, Managing Director of CounterBooks says “Independent retailers are critical to the UK economy and we are delighted to support the campaign”.

Throughout the month, CounterBooks will be publishing a series of articles aimed at helping independent retailers to become more “financially aware” and therefore making more informed business decisions.

Mr Roberts continues “Over the past 24 months, we have seen a radical shift in the landscape of the high street which can present many opportunities to independent retailers. Like many small business owners, retailers can face a disadvantage through the lack of knowledge and understanding of accounting which can often make the difference between success and failure. We hope that the events and information provided throughout the Independent Retailer Month will help independent retailers become more successful.”
