Shop local during "Independents Week"

Posted: Updated:
 DANE COUNTY (WKOW) -- Small and independent businesses are asking you to shop local over the next 11 days.

This is the first year "Independents Week" is being held in Dane County.

It began last year in other places as a summer version of "Small Business Saturday."
Madison Mayor Paul Soglin says local businesses, like the ones staying open on Johnson Street during construction downtown, need customers now more than ever, saying "We've all got to work diligently and make a commitment, because these are the kinds of businesses that serve us when we need them, they dont leave town on us, they provide us support and right now they need us and our business."

There are more than 60 buy local events planned across the county over the next 11 days.
