It's Independent Retailer Month 

Take a closer look at these handpicked independents at the Brunel Shopping Centre
Independents Month
Independent Retailer Month is a national campaign that promotes and celebrates independent businesses throughout the UK.

Now in its fourth year, the campaign has quickly become the voice of independent retailers to reach the local community, and gives them a chance to be heard and get on people's radar.
The Brunel Shopping Centre has always been a proud supporter of independent business, and this month they are helping draw attention to a fantastic selection of companies housed within their walls.

WATCH: Independent Retailers at The Brunel, Swindon

But The Brunel can't support independent businesses all on their own - they need your help too! This month they are also asking customers to send in their own little "video selfies" to speak up for a shop that they particularly admire.

A number of shops at the Brunel have already received personalised messages including AM Oriental, aqua-G, Carry On Vintage, Krafty Monkey, Miche Niche, Razor Sharp, Serisa, Sugar Oh Honey Honey, and Sweets Galore. You can view each of these below.
