Small Business Saturday Wolverhampton City Centre

Enjoy Wolverhampton BID is urging people to show their support and shop local for Small Business Saturday on 5 December. This national day of action highlights the success of small businesses and looks to maybe inspire others to set up on their own. And, with shoppers now able to return to non-essential shops under strict coronavirus social distancing guidance, now is the time to get behind your local shops.

Times have never been tougher but we don’t need to remind you of that. If every working adult in the city pledged to spend an extra £5 a week more locally instead of with the major online retailers, it would boost the local economy by £780,000.

There are different ways to shop these days, and who would have thought a year ago we would be encouraging you to shop online? Well now you can at Shop Appy Wolverhampton - 26 businesses have so far signed up.

You could also check out the almost 300 local businesses that have signed up to showcase themselves online  This platform is being backed by a marketing campaign driving residents to the website and encouraging them to support their local high street.

To end we couldn’t forget that our Enjoy Wolverhampton City Centre Gift Card can also be spent in many of the centres small businesses. To remind you of where you can buy and who takes the card click here 

So this “Small Business Saturday 2020” Be proud, be vocal do more, shop local”
