Denbighshire County Council is lending its support to a major nationwide campaign, encouraging people to support their local businesses.
Saturday 5th December is designated Small Business Saturday, with a major campaign launched to raise the profile of businesses in communities across the UK.
* Castle Street is full of good small businesses.
Organisers of the national campaign are encouraging all kinds of small businesses to get involved, including family businesses, local shops, online businesses, wholesalers, business services or small manufacturers. The council is running a promotional campaign to support the day, with banners and posters being produced as a visual reminder to people to support their local shops and businesses across Denbighshire.
Messages will also be circulated on social media and through the council’s website and local media.
Leader of Denbighshire, Councillor Hugh Evans OBE, said: “This is an extremely important initiative to highlight the wealth of businesses in our towns and villages.
“People will be very surprised at the unique kind of products and businesses they can access locally, right on their own doorstep. Public support is vital to the on-going success of our businesses which, in turn, will provide opportunities for businesses to grow and flourish.
“But we want people to support their local businesses all year round, not only for one day of the year. Nationally designated days like Small Business Saturday are really good for raising the profile of businesses – what we want is for people to consider their towns and villages as their first port of call when considering their needs."
