Small Business Saturday hits the UK For the First Time This Week
Flintshire County Council this Christmas are supporting small businesses across the county through an exciting new initiative.
Small Business Saturday is the first nationwide scheme to celebrate the important role that small business plays in our communities and to encourage people to use them more. It is due to happen on one of the busiest shopping days of the year.
Flintshire County Council will be working with partners to help promote the initiative that takes place on Saturday 7 December and is designed to celebrate small businesses by promoting local independent shops and stalls in high streets, villages and markets both on the day and beyond.
The partners will be highlighting the wide range of help available in the area during Small Business Saturday at the Town Hall Foyer in Mold and at The Artisan shop, 49-51 High Street, Holywell, on 7 December between 10am and 2pm.
All are invited to come along and talk to the Council’s team to find out how they can help promote the initiative.
Small Business Saturday is an initiative that has now become a national event in the USA.
Councillor Derek Butler, Cabinet Member for Economic Development said:
“Every year on the day spending in small shops rises and the scheme has led to a long-term increase in customers. It also helps local small businesses to come together and champion their vital role in communities”.
