We're in the Small Business Saturday 100!!
Updated: Nov 5, 2018
I'm so excited to announce that Addiscotts Dog food has been selected to be part of the "Small Business Saturday 100"!
It's a massive achievement for us to be selected from the thousands of applications as one of the 100 businesses that are the focus of Small Business Saturday, so we are really really chuffed!
Small Business Saturday is a grassroots, non-commercial campaign, which highlights small business success and encourages consumers to ‘shop local’ in their communities. Their Mission is to get the UK to support small businesses; not just on one Saturday in December, but all-year-round.
The day itself takes place on the 1st December this year.
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. We're really excited to see how we can collaborate with other local businesses to create awareness in the lead up to Christmas, encouraging customers to shop locally!
If you are a small business and want to get involved there is a directory you can sign up to so people can search for business in their local area to either collaborate with or shop at; the portal helps to promote your small business both before, during and after Small Business Saturday. Register your details with them and they'll promote you with the small business finder. You can register here https://smallbusinesssaturdayuk.com/my-small-business
As a customer you can show your support for Small Business Saturday and encourage others to get involved. This could be by using social media to spread the word with your friends and family about Small Business Saturday itself using #SmallBizSatUK or by using the 'Small Business Finder' to locate small businesses in your local area that you might like to buy from and pledge your support.
You can see what's happening on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and Linkedin. Be sure to share the love!
