Support Dudley borough businesses this Small Business Saturday
02 Dec 2021
Christmas shoppers are being urged to “go local” and support small businesses as part of a national initiative during the festive season.
Saturday 4 December is Small Business Saturday and Dudley Council bosses are hoping people doing their Christmas shopping will help support smaller businesses in the borough.
From craft stores to markets, quirky coffee shops to hair and beauty boutiques, businesses across the borough, small businesses have lots to offer people looking for gifts.
Councillor Simon Phipps, cabinet member for regeneration and enterprise said:
"Small businesses across Dudley borough are working really hard to provide the best products and services for shoppers.
"With Christmas just around the corner, it’s the perfect time for us to support our local businesses and discover something new. I’d urge people to go local if they can."
People can support their favourite small business by popping in store, purchasing through their online shop or sharing their posts on social media.
Small businesses can also get involved by hosting an event or promotion or posting on social media tagging @DudleyBusiness1 and #SmallBizSatUK into social media posts.
Council owned car parks in town centres are free for two hours parking. Free all-day parking is also available on all council car parks on December 11 and 18 to help boost local trade. Shoppers can also use the Swift parking app to pay for your parking at other times.
