Small Business Saturday is a UK initiative to encourage people to shop local and to support small businesses. It takes place on the first Saturday in December each year and it is rapidly becoming very high profile – perhaps partly as the antithesis to Black Friday.
Two things. First, if you are already planning an event, activity, special offer or other Small Business Saturday activity, please let me know. If we have a volume of food and drink businesses in D&G taking part it would be good to highlight this to our local media. Send details of your plans to firstname.lastname@example.org .
Secondly, if you are not already planning a Small Business Saturday initiative, please think about doing so. This campaign has particularly good social media reach. Some ideas and inspiration can be found here: https://www.smallbusinesssaturdayuk.com/#get-involved
