Small Business Saturday competes with Black Friday

Small Business Saturday

If you’ve been shopping this weekend you may have seen long queues, frantic shoppers and huge discounts. Black Friday, an American concept that sees retailers slash prices after Thanksgiving to mark the start of Christmas, swept across England over the weekend.

All the excitement and anticipation soon bubbled into anger and greed as some shoppers lost their decorum in a frenzy. Pushing, shoving and even punching escalated in many stores across the UK with security wrestling an overzealous bargain hunter to the ground in Bristol.

Is this really the season of goodwill?

If you’d rather not begin the festive season fighting over a 42” plasma TV with more animosity than Scrooge himself, Small Business Saturday may be the seasonal saviour you’ve been looking for.

To spend Christmas with your conscience you may find shopping at your local independent businesses refreshing and rewarding.

Small Business Saturday aims to show consumers that all the best deals are not just found in your local ASDA. With great service, personality and care, local businesses are able to listen to the shopper without need for wrestling or wrangling goods.

Bag yourself a bargain with style on Saturday 7th December and support Small Business Saturday!
