Independence Day In Oxford

While most of the world know that on the 4th of July the United States of America celebrate Independence Day, in Oxford not everyone recognises this date in the same way. Retailers in Oxford, that is Independent Retailers have used today to encourage customers to give your local independent store on the High Street a chance, and I would agree. Oxford is very fortunate that we still have a large number of unique stores like Walters on Turl Street who offer a very different shopping experience and product compared to the National chains. The retailers are not anti multi nationals, just want to encourage people to have a look at the smaller independent stores and you may be surprised.

I think it's a brilliant idea and every community should do it. A lot of our smaller stores took up a similar idea this weekend.
