Small Business Saturday is a grass-roots, non-political, non-commercial campaign that encourages people to support small businesses in their communities, both on the Saturday itself and beyond. The campaign also aims to support, inspire and promote small business all year round.
The initiative started in 2010 in the US, and has generated a lot of custom for small businesses. The campaign is now in its fourth year in the UK.
Our nation’s small businesses provide almost two thirds of private sector employment and almost half of private sector turnover.
Small Business Saturday is encouraging all 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!
