Saturday 4th December will mark this year’s Small Business Saturday; a day to celebrate and support the many wonderful local and small businesses here across the whole city of York.
York Lib Dem councillors are encouraging residents and visitors to get involved in this year’s Small Business Saturday and take the opportunity to visit their local high street and support local businesses.
Councillor Andrew Waller, Executive Member for Economy and Strategic Planning, commented:
“Throughout York, we are fortunate to be home to a rich variety of small and independent businesses which are there because of “high street heroes” who have worked hard to set up and keep running businesses throughout all the lockdowns and restrictions. The resilience of York’s local economy has been down to the strength and collective size of independent businesses.
“They are the lifeblood of each local community, offering a range of goods and services that are vital to customers, yet the past 19 months have been extremely difficult for many of them. So please show that you appreciate their efforts over the last 19 months, and see what is available right on your doorstep to get gifts, and vouchers for Christmas presents.
