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 sixth 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 1 December.
