Shop Small Saturday

This Saturday will be the very first Small Business Saturday an idea that started in 2012 in the USA and received backing from none other than President Barack Obama.

To try and encourage shoppers to support their local shops and high streets this campaign has also been heavily backed by American Express.

Small local shops can add so much to a community, not only are they more likely to employ local people unlike online businesses but they also contribute to local fundraising events something that companies such as large internet firms, mentioning no names, also struggle to do.

We hope that this first event in the UK is a huge success and helps restore health and faith in the High Street and keeps the towns they are in vital to the community. We look forward to seeing you in either Oxted or Reigate this coming Saturday.

High Street of Reigate.
