It is an opportunity to celebrate the quality and diversity of small, independent and local businesses.
Small businesses are being encouraged to participate by creating special events to mark the day. A special day for the businesses to showcase their products and services - and just for this day to offer added value with discounts, special offers or events.
Small business needs your support.
Small Business Saturday is all about recognising the importance of having a vibrant and successful small business sector. So take a look at the special offers, take advantage of the discounts and take a look at your local small business - it could be the beginning of the long term relationship.
YES - this is the fourth - last year saw 16 million people support a local independent on Small Business Saturday - with an estimated 64% of the of the UK aware of the event. (Must try harder!)
