Indie Challenge Kicks Off
The Indie challenge is simply to shop locally from July 1- July 7, 2010.
The organization Columbia Locally-Owned Retail and Services, or COLORS, is putting together the Indie Challenge.
Columbia will be kicking off their event with a press conference this morning at Uprise Bakery on Thursday at 10 a.m.
Organizers hope participants talk about it with their friends, or on their Facebook, Twitter. Businesses that are participating in this week long challenge have been asked to display a logo decal in front of their business all week as well as a sign displaying an advertisement for the week inside.
Throughout the week Columbia will be showcasing prominent members of the community that have decided this week to take the challenge for the next seven days.
