On Saturday 6th December 2014 it is the second, annual Small Business Saturday, and Sunderland BID are backing this brilliant event on one of the busiest shopping days of the year.
Every £1 spent at an independent store sees 63p go back into that business creating growth!
So, Why should YOU shop LOCAL?
We want you to celebrate Sunderland’s small businesses who all do a big job in boosting our local economy.
From barbers to bakers, to stylish jewellery makers – small businesses are at the heart of Sunderland!
Local, independent shops invest more in our communities. They sell a wide range of great products at affordable prices AND shopping local retains our communities!
