Small Business Saturday

Small Business Saturday exists to support, inspire and promote small businesses on the 6th December and beyond

Shop local, Source local for local benefits.

Local residents are being encouraged to shop local and businesses to source local both on Small Business Saturday (6th December) and at other times to help local businesses, the local economy and their community. 

Small Business Saturday is a national campaign highlighting that

•For every £100 spent in a local business, £68 is likely to stay in the community helping the local economy.

• Independent shops create a distinctive and diverse shopping experience.  You might be surprised by the range of products, services and gifts available in your local shopping centre

• More people shopping locally will not only help existing independent shops to continue trading but also encourage more local businesses to start-up.  Therefore you will be helping to sustain and create local jobs.

• Local businesses support a wide range of community causes.  Therefore supporting local shops provides a financial benefit for your local community. 

Resident participation

Small businesses are very important to our town so please show your support for these providers of local services and jobs.
