Denbighshire County Council is urging residents to support their local businesses on Saturday.
The day has been designated Small Business Saturday and a national campaign has been launched to encourage people to consider shopping locally.
The county council is supporting the initiative and has launched its own publicity and marketing campaign.
Councillor Hugh Evans OBE, Leader of Denbighshire, who is also the 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 and we have been delighted with the response.
“We want to emphasise the importance of shopping locally and accessing the wide variety of goods and services that can be accessed in our own communities. We would ask residents to help us spread the word about the campaign and lets see our town centres thriving on December 5.
“We hope that the council’s free after three parking initiative where people can park for free in our pay and display car parks in the town centres will also encourage more people to visit town, rather than visit out of county locations."
