Celebrate Small Business Saturday 2018 this weekend!Posted on: 27 Nov 2018
Bristol is known as a city that prides itself on supporting fiercely independent, creative and unique business enterprises, making this year's Small Business Saturday the perfect opportunity for business owners in the area to show off their work and improve their trading. With hundreds of projects running in the city from clothing shops to cleaning services, find out how Bristol small business can help you this weekend by getting involved - see below for a full index of city centre locations providing a wide range of goods and services.
Small Business Saturday is a grassroots, non-commercial campaign that highlights small business success and encourages consumers to shop locally and support small, independent businesses in their communities.
Of course, a huge number of Bristol businesses are sure to be getting involved in Small Business Saturday this year, with over 50 situated in the city centre area alone. Of course, big companies and corporations often represent more convenient options for consumers, but the idea behind Small Business Saturday is that it's much more beneficial for numerous reasons to shop locally, maintain small businesses and, ultimately, put money into the pockets of fellow Bristolians rather than those at the top of huge multinationals.
For a comprehensive list of businesses involved with Small Business Saturday this year offering a huge range of goods and services in and around the local area, check out the organisers' handy Bristol Small Business Finder. There, you can find a map of central Bristol with the details of 50 small, independent businesses, including the services they offer, opening times, locations and more.
Alternatively, you can find our handy guide to Bristol's best independent shopping areas to visit if you're looking to do your bit on Small Business Saturday and do some shopping in some local independents.
