Nominations sought for new “Indie Business Awards”

The inaugural Twin Cities Indie Business Awards will honor five local, independent businesses for their impact on the community.

“So many of our locally-owned, independent businesses fly under the radar, and we are excited to draw attention to businesses who are often overlooked but have been dedicated to serving their customers for years,” Metro Independent Business Alliance Executive Director Mary Hamel said in a statement. “This is our opportunity to give some much-deserved recognition to those businesses who contribute to their communities in ways not necessarily recognized.”

The awards will be presented May 18 at the The Blaisdell at 24th & Blaisdell. Nominations are accepted thru Feb. 22, and forms are available here.
