This Saturday, the 7th December is the date for this year’s SMALL BUSINESS SATURDAY!
In 2010 American Express created Small Business Saturday to encourage people to Shop Small and bring more people Christmas shopping in small local businesses. Making a difference in your community is as easy as shopping small!
Nowadays it’s too easy to shop online and although it may be convenient, unfortunately this is killing our High Streets! Many independent shops are closing down and disappearing each year and this will continue unless more people shop in their High Street instead of searching online.
A major difference you’ll find shopping with local and independent shops compared with online is assistance from their staff. They will always have great knowledge of their stock and products and be able to give useful advice. They can help you find exactly what you are looking for or can give you inspiration if you’re stuck on what to buy whether for a present for someone or maybe something for yourself.
At Elliotts we pride ourselves on our excellent customer service and the quality products we sell in store which often cannot be bought anywhere else in the local area. Every customer is greeted with a smile and we will do our very best to ensure you enjoy every minute of your shopping experience!
Did you know! Parking will be free on Saturday 7 December in all NFDC car parks in Lymington in support of Small Business Saturday. So there’s no excuse not to visit our wonderful town this Saturday. With the market and lots of places to shop, eat and drink – Lymington is the place to be this Saturday!
Remember it’s not just Christmas time you should be supporting the High Street! When you support your favourite small businesses throughout the year you help your neighbourhood thrive, so let’s keep the High Street alive!
