Small Business Saturday UK comes to the Gedling this Saturday (6 December) and we’re backing the national campaign to encourage people to shop at independent local shops.
The aim of the Small Business Saturday UK campaign is to encourage people to ‘Shop Local’ and support small businesses in their communities and it takes place on one of the busiest shopping days in the year.
Shoppers can make the most of the day and shop ‘til they drop by parking for two hours for free or for 4 hours for just £1 in car parks across Arnold, Mapperley, Carlton and Netherfield.
Council Leader Cllr John Clarke, said: “We are dedicated to doing whatever we can to support our local economy and having vibrant town centres lies at the heart of that. As someone who was ran a small business for over 30 years, I know how much local businesses appreciate the support and we’re right behind this national campaign to support independent businesses by encouraging people to Shop Local this Christmas.”
