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. It is supported by all political parties.
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. On Small Business Saturday, customers across the U.K are encouraged go out and support all types of small businesses, online, in offices (e.g. local accountants & solicitors) in homes (e.g. childminders, mobile hairdressers) and in stores (e.g. shops, salons, cafes etc). Several Claygate businesses will take part on the day by hosting events and offering discounts on their services and products.
