“Small Business Saturday highlights the important contribution that small businesses make to the British economy. I support this campaign to encourage people to buy products and services in their local communities, especially in the run up to Christmas. The British economy is booming and Brexit is going to give small Businesses all over Britain the opportunity to trade with the rest of the world.”

Now entering its fifth year, Small Business Saturday is the UK’s most successful small business campaign. Small Business Saturday 2016 had a huge impact:

  • Customers spent £717m with small businesses on Small Business Saturday, an increase of 15% on 2015 spending
  • Over 140,000 tweets were sent on the day reaching 130 million people, trending on Twitter in the UK and globally
  • Over 80% of local authorities across the UK actively supported the campaign in a variety of ways, from networking events to free parking, meaning wherever you were in the UK, Small Business Saturday was happening nearby
