It’s the fourth of July and that means only one thing, it’s Independents’ Day. No, we’ve not spelt anything wrong, we’re re-naming July the fourth as Independents’ Day here in the UK.
Not to take anything away from our American cousins, but we feel the UK independent automotive aftermarket needs to be celebrated. So this is your day.
Below you’ll find a few links to some of the great British aftermarket stories we’ve covered in the past year. We’re also keen to here how you’ll be spending your Independents’ Day, get in touch with a picture of your workshop celebrating and you could be featured in next month’s magazine. Email firstname.lastname@example.org with your snaps.
