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.
Now in its fifth year, the day itself takes place on the first Saturday in December, but the campaign aims to have a lasting impact on small businesses. This year the big day is on Saturday 2 December.
They want all kinds of small businesses to get involved, so know that whether you are a family business, local shop, online business, wholesaler, business service or small manufacturer, Small Business Saturday is supporting you! For all the ways you can get involved, check out this link.
On the day, customers across the UK go out and support all types of small businesses, online, in offices and in stores. Many small businesses take part in the day by hosting events and offering discounts.
If you want to support a local small business, this weekend or any other day, Small Business Saturday have their own Small Business Finder. Simply add your postcode and the registered businesses will be displayed on an interactive map.
