Warwick's is a proud member of Indiebound and firm advocates of a strong local economy helping to create a vibrant, healthy local community. Buying local means less packaging, less transportation, and a smaller carbon footprint, while shopping in a local business district means less infrastructure, less maintenance, and more money to beautify your community. More independent businesses mean more diversity, more choices, and a truly unique community. Shop your local small businesses to allow your community to thrive!What is IndieBound?
IndieBound is a community-oriented movement begun by the independent bookseller members of the American Booksellers Association. It brings together booksellers, readers, indie retailers, local business alliances, and anyone else with a passionate belief that healthy local economies help communities thrive. Supporting local, indie businesses means that dollars, jobs, diversity, choice, and taxes stay local, creating strong, unique communities and happy citizens.
It's a powerful tool for booksellers to communicate their part in a national movement supporting independents - and lets everyone know just how many independent bookstores there are. It's powerful for authors to show their dedication to indies nationwide, easily done through linking to thousands of indie bookstores through IndieBound.org. It's powerful because IndieBound encompasses and supports all types of independent retailers, not just booksellers - and local or regional shop local campaigns and independent business alliances, as well. And it's powerful for consumers to feel a part of a larger movement, to know that their choices make a difference and that others are working toward the same goals.
