#shopchelseamich Independents 
“Red, White & Blue Window Wars” 
The American Independent Business Alliance (AMIBA) promotes Independents Week beginning July 3 through July 9 to unite local independent businesses "Indie Locals" and citizens to celebrate our local businesses' entrepreneurial spirit and the freedom they embody. 
The #shopchelseamich independent merchants will be dressing up their window fronts in celebration of INDEPENDENTS! And you can engage with this display by voting for the storefront that most effectively displays: 
● Best use of color
● Best alignment with the theme (Red, White & Blue)
● Most imaginative 
 Voting begins on July 3 and runs through July 9. Participating stores will have a flyer in their window and be highlighted on the @shopchelseamichigan website. So be sure to cast your vote! Last year's winner was @lamaisonchelsea.  #independentsweek #voteforyourfavorite #chelseami #chelseamich #chelseamichigan
