The Just A Card movement is holding a Just A Card day next week (June 17). The movement is committed to supporting independents – and telling consumers that buying ‘Just A Card’ or another small purchase can help keep indie retailers in business. Cookshops (such as Prep Cookshop and Richard Dare in North London) are among the independents that are involved.
To take part in Just A Card Day, indie cookshops and housewares stockists should post an image of themselves on instagram wearing a Just A Card pin, or shop with the Just A Card window sticker or logo (free from website). In comment, participants should say what makes their shop special.
Independents are also invited to head to the Just A Card instagram page for a virtual meet-up and introduce themselves to meet other ‘like-minded ‘people and busineses, to build Instagram engagement and gain new followers.
