Businesses in Denbighshire are being urged to lend their backing to a national campaign that encourages people to support their local shops and businesses.
December 5 is designated Small Business Saturday and Denbighshire County Council has produced posters and banners encouraging people to shop local on this day.
The day is also being promoted through the council’s website, in the media and on social media.
Councillor Hugh Evans, leader of Denbighshire, who is also lead member for the economy, said: “Our teams of staff have already been out and about talking to businesses and encouraging them to display posters. The response has been really positive and we would encourage all businesses to display a poster and speak to their customers about the campaign and the importance of local support.
“We have also received the backing of a number of our city, town and community councils who are more than happy to work with the Council to help spread the word. We are grateful for this support as it means we can get the message out there far and wide in our communities.
“By doing all of this activity, we are encouraging people to think about what’s right on their doorstep and support the wide range of businesses that offer services and products to meet everybody’s needs.”
