METRO celebrates 6th Own Business Day
The small flower shop around the corner, the cosy café next door or the favorite restaurant in town – during the pandemic those independent businesses suffered particularly. That's why it's now even more important to properly celebrate all independent business owners and their successes on 12 October 2021 under the motto "There is no joy without you". Initiated by METRO in 2016, Own Business Day brings communities in more than 22 countries together and calls for every single person to go out and dive into a variety of options, services and explore the joys independent businesses bring into their lives every day.
