This year we will be encouraging shoppers to use the Small Business Saturday small business finder tool to find local retailers operating online or via click-and-collect. We will also be encouraging local businesses to sign-up for this free service.
How can you get involved?
We are aware that many of our partners across London and the South East already have their own Shop Local initiatives and online directories. At the very least we hope our activity will supplement your own. We have prepared a toolkit with more information on Small Business Saturday and suggested social media copy, which you may find useful. You can find it here.
You can help us to spread the “Search Local. Shop Local.” message in the following ways:
- Local businesses can register on the Small Business Saturday website
- Post on social media about the benefits of shopping locally online. You can find suggested social media copy and tracked links in our toolkit. Please use the #SearchLocal #ShopLocal hashtags in your content so we can track activity.
- After National Restrictions end, share examples of local businesses that are reopening safely in a COVID-secure manner.
- Share and like social media content about the platform on our HMG London & South East channels.
The Small Business Saturday small business finder tool can be found using the following trackable link: here.
