Small Business Saturday

Small Business Saturday UK is returning to Derby this December, at the Market Hall.

Small Business Saturday is a grassroots, non-commercial campaign, which highlights small business success and encourages consumers to ‘shop local’ and support small businesses in their communities.

The day itself takes place on the first Saturday in December each year, but the campaign aims to have a lasting impact on small businesses. 

Yvonne Gorman, Owner of Bondholder Essential Print Services and Small Business Saturday UK Champion has co-hosted the event at Derby City Council House in previous years but for 2017, it’ll be held at the heart of small businesses; Derby’s historic Market Hall.

Yvonne said: “We are calling upon Marketing Derby’s Bondholders to show their support and visit the Market Hall, at some point during the day and help celebrate our small business community and this historic venue.

“It absolutely astounds me that by making a small change to our spending habits, together, we can make a big difference to a small, local business. I urge everyone to spend a bit of time and to spend a bit of money with the Derby Market Hall traders not just on Saturday 2nd December, but in the months and years to come.”

Martin Rawson, Deputy Leader of fellow Bondholder Derby City Council, said: "We’re delighted to once again promote the Small Business Saturday event.

"We have a thriving small business community and we’ve pledged to showcase the wide variety of support that’s available to local companies and entrepreneurs to help them create and grow sustainable enterprises.”
