Every year on Small Business Saturday, businesses are given the spotlight to promote the value and importance of shopping local. While the celebrations are taking place today (Saturday 7th December), the campaign aims to have a lasting impact on small businesses and consumers.
According to research commissioned by the founder of Small Business Saturday, 59%* of consumers aware of the day claimed to have intentionally spent more than usual in their local outlets, so raising awareness of the campaign is paramount in helping small businesses to thrive. Many hold events and offer discounts in celebration, while as a supporter of the initiative, Signs Express wanted to highlight the effectiveness of good signage for small businesses in different sectors, from retail and trade to hospitality and professional services.
