5th December 2015 Small Business Saturday

 

Will your shop be joining in with Small Business Saturday this year on 5th December? The campaign wants all kinds of businesses from shops, online businesses, businesses services companies and wholesalers to join in.

Small Business Saturday UK is a grass roots, non-commercial campaign, which highlights small business success and encourages consumers to ‘shop local’ and support small businesses in their communities. 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. 

It has been reported that Small Business Saturday 2014 was a great success with 16.5 million people shopping in a small independent business on that day, representing a 20% increase on the previous year or an extra 2.7 million more shoppers. Research has also indicated that 64% of UK consumers were aware of the day (a rise of 33% on the previous year). There was also increased activity on social media last year with around 3.5 million Facebook views.

So with such a high level of awareness it would seem sensible to join in and take advantage of this day specifically designed to help the small business and to get people to “shop local”.
