Small Business Saturday launched in the UK in 2013. It falls on the busiest shopping day each year, the first Saturday of December. It’s designed to encourage customers to spend their money in independent, local businesses rather than big high street chains.
Although the Small Business Saturday campaign is run completely independently to us, we are big supporters and work closely with the organisers. This is because we share many of the same messages and goals as Small Business Saturday. We want to celebrate every small business and every sector of the economy. We want to see every MP and local authority doing their bit to support the campaign.
For more information on how to get involved in the campaign go to the Small Business Saturday website.
