Small Business Saturday UK is a national campaign which highlights small business success and encourages us all to ‘shop local’.
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.
In 2017 Small Business Saturday is on Saturday, December 2nd.
Small Business Saturday celebrates Britain’s small and micro businesses and encourages consumers to spend more with small firms. Customers across the U.K are encouraged to use their local high streets and specialist retailers, eateries, and services supporting all types of small businesses, online, in offices and in stores.
Many of the small businesses and retailers in our towns and village high streets will be taking part in the day by hosting events and offering discounts.
