Small Business Saturday UK – the annual campaign that puts small, independent businesses in communities across the country in the national spotlight – is coming to Chester.
Chester will be one of the stops when the campaign takes to the road again with a nationwide promotional bus tour to raise the profile of the campaign and the day itself, Saturday, December 3.
Using the theme Small Business, Big Difference, the A-B bus tour will begin on Monday, October 24 in Aberdeen and will conclude in Bournemouth on Friday, November 25.
The bus tour will visit Chester between 10am and 2pm on Friday, November 11 to promote the campaign to both local small business owners and consumers.
The bus tour, which aims to promote the campaign to both consumers and small business owners around the UK, will also host workshops and seminars at its daily destinations.
Small Business Saturday national campaign director Michelle Ovens said: “Small Business Saturday is not just a campaign to raise awareness of our diverse and innovative small business sector, but also a vehicle from which small businesses who embrace make use of the campaign can derive tangible benefit.
“The bus tour is a very visible way for us to meet small businesses around the UK and show them how they can become involved as well as drumming up consumer interest, support and enthusiasm.
“We are really looking forward to welcoming small business owners and consumers to the bus to get information and find out ways in which they can support small businesses and make the day work most effectively for companies in their own communities.”
