Have you heard of Small Business Saturday?
Small Business Saturday UK is a grassroots, non-commercial campaign, which highlights small business success and encourages consumers to ‘shop local’ and support small businesses in their communities. The concept was first launched in the USA in 2010.
The day itself takes place on the first Saturday in December each year, but the campaign aims to have a lasting impact on small businesses. This year in the UK Small Business Saturday is this Saturday, December 2nd.
At NE blinds we’ve signed up to the Small Business Finder and we try to use independent local firms whenever we can. Studies show that more of the money spent at a small, local business stays in the local economy. This supports local jobs and strengthens communities. So do your bit. Shop small and and shop local!
