Obsessing over green eyeliner. Cutting your own asymmetrical bob. Eating everything with chopsticks.
You've always been one do your own thing, Little Miss Independent.
Now you have a month to be rewarded by like-minded local businesses. During the month of July (that's Friday!), members of the Metro Independent Business Alliance will help you Celebrate Your Independents.
At participating retailers and restaurants, you'll be able to pick up a brochure -- or download one here -- and get up to 30 deals.
For example, you can score 20 percent off a purchase $30 or more at Bibelot, 20 percent off any single regularly priced item at Key North Boutique (pictured), 15 percent off non-sale items at the Electric Fetus, $50 off orders of $500 and up at Warners' Stellian, a free glass of iced coffee or chai at Butter Bakery Cafe, $50 off of a new Apple Computer at First Tech, $5 off a purchase of $50 or more at Linden Hills Co-Op, a free reusable bag at both Peapods and The Wedge, a free auto rack with qualifying bike purchase at Strauss Skates & Bicycles and $100 off a complete eyewear purchase at EyeDeals.
Kelly Clarkson would be proud.
