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.

With countless chains dominating the streets, especially during the busiest shopping season of the year, small businesses often compete more than ever to stand out. Eye-catching outdoor business signs are proven to increase the chance of a sale by 70%**. An attention-grabbing shop front is a must, with fascia signs and built-up letters being the most popular choices. Consider illumination for that extra wow-factor and promotional window graphics that really shout about what your shop has to offer.
