    Lancaster City Indie Retail Week 2023

    Back for another year, Lancaster City Indie Retail Week is a chance to support the wealth of merchants that help make our city a destination for unique local shopping. The incredible small business owners behind each of these storefronts and online shops curate a collection of quality goods—from cooking spices and oils, to tailored clothing and antiques, to crafted goods and fine art—that delight and draw in visitors and make Lancaster a wonderful place to call home.


    This special week, which is newly managed by the City and LOOP (Lancaster Office of Promotion) team, will be held August 18–26, 2023, and is a chance to celebrate the vibrant group of independent retailers that remain a pillar of our community.


    “Dedicating a week to celebrating independently owned retail businesses reminds us how important they are to our local economy,” said Cheila Huettner, Lancaster Office of Promotion & Welcome Center Manager. “I cherish the experience of walking into a specialty store, appreciating the curation of the shop, and the feeling of exploration and satisfaction of finding that special item that catches your eye. The City of Lancaster’s Office of Promotion is excited to take on Indie Retail Week this year, and we plan to take full advantage of the deals and this unique time to connect with our small business owners.”

    All week long, over 60 merchants will offer deals and promotions for shoppers to enjoy. Below is a list of participating retailers so you can start planning your spree. View their specials at the Lancaster City Indie Retail Week website.
