Businesses are gearing up for Small Business Saturday, taking place on 6 December.
The annual event, now in its second year in the UK, encourages people to shop local on their high street and support their local communities.
Spending money with small local businesses supports local employment and helps to maintain the services those businesses provide in our town centres.
The day itself takes place on the first shopping Saturday in December each year, but the campaign aims to have a lasting impact on small businesses.
A range of marketing resources to promote your small business can be downloaded for free from the Small Business Saturday website.
WE SAY: “Shop Local!” Support your local community.
