Neighbourhood Video Series

Independent America

Artisanal foods, microbreweries; local business has been making a bit of a comeback in recent years as there is a growing insurgency against corporate retail. Hanson Hosein and Heather Hughes drive 13,000 miles across America’s back roads to see if its possible to make the shift from chain store back to Mom & Pop.

These days, you have to go out of your way if you want to do business with Mom & Pop. One couple has taken that notion a little bit farther, 13,000 miles farther to be exact. … a thought provoking new documentary, which uncovers the growing opposition to big box retail across the U.S. and the often desperate fight being waged by independent retailers to stay alive.
