Scenes from Small Business Saturday

Small Business Saturday is a not-for-profit campaign, which highlights small business success and encourages everyone to support small and local businesses.

Small Business Saturday 2016 had a huge impact across the country with customers spending £717 million with small businesses on the day, an increase of 15 per cent on 2015 spending.

Over 140,000 tweets were sent promoting the day, reaching 130 million people.

Liverpool was one of the over 80 per cent of local authorities across the UK that actively supported the campaign in a variety of ways.

I have backed the initiative from the start and had some wonderful feedback from local businesses who have used the day to encourage people to shop with them.

Once again this year, I will be spending Small Business Saturday locally, visiting shops and talking to traders across Liverpool Wavertree.

If you think there is a business that I should be visiting on the day, please do let me know by emailing: luciana4wavertree@hotmail.co.uk
