Cllr Maurice Howse, Portfolio Holder for Enterprise Housing and Revenues, said: “On Saturday, 5th December (and the rest of the year for that matter!) why not think about where you shop and consider using your local shops, tradesmen, services and suppliers as much as possible.
“Our towns, villages and rural areas offer a unique and extensive range of products and services from a wealth of independent businesses which are crucial to our local economy and your support is needed to keep our rural economies alive.”
All kinds of small businesses are encouraged to get involved, so whether you are a family business, local shop, online business, wholesaler, business service or small manufacturer, Small Business Saturday is supporting you.
For further information on how businesses and customers can get involved visit: www.smallbusinesssaturdayuk.com
In the run up to the day itself, every week for the next ten weeks we will feature a local, small business.
See page 11 of this week’s Herald as we shine the spotlight on Stratford Antiques and Interiors, in Evesham Road, Stratford-upon-Avon.
