This year's Small Business Saturday takes place against a challenging background - as the global economy recovers from the pandemic and national governments battle to control inflation.
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.
The day itself takes place on the first Saturday in December each year, but the campaign aims to have a lasting impact on small businesses.
On Small Business Saturday, customers across the U.K. 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.
The next Small Business Saturday takes place on December 3rd, 2022.
