Lewis Macdonald supporting Small Business Saturday
North East Labour MSP Lewis Macdonald will be supporting the annual Small Business Saturday event by visiting independent retailers in Aberdeen’s West End on Saturday 5th December.
Small Business Saturday has been taking place on the first Saturday of December since 2013.
The grassroots campaign aims to support, inspire and promote small businesses, and encourages consumers to “shop local” and see what small businesses in their area have to offer.
Lewis said :
“I have supported Small Business Saturday UK since its launch in 2013.
It is a fantastic opportunity for small businesses across the city to put themselves on the map, and for shoppers to experience something more than High Street brands.
“The West End is just one of Aberdeen’s many vibrant shopping areas, home to dozens of small business offering everything from cafés and restaurants to clothing stores and galleries.
“With Christmas just around the corner, now is the perfect time for Aberdeen’s shoppers to see what small businesses have to offer.”
