Saturday 3 December is Small Business Saturday, a day to celebrate independent retailers of the local high street.
Small Business Saturday UK is a grassroots, non-commercial campaign, which highlights small business success and encourages consumers to shop local and support small businesses in their communities. Caerphilly County Borough Council’s Town Centre management Team are encouraging residents and visitors to support the town centres of Caerphilly county borough this Christmas.
To make the high street even more attractive this festive period the team have once again produced a ‘Choose the High Street’ Christmas Voucher Booklet which this year contains 112 offers from local retailers. The booklets are free and available at the following locations:
- Blackwood – ASDA, Maxime Cinema, Tidal Stores, Chinkles, Blackwood Miners Institute and the library
- Caerphilly – Morrisons, Weatherspoon’s ‘ The Malcom Uphill’, Visitor Centre and the library
- Bargoed – Morrisons, Poundworld and the library
- Risca – Tesco and the library
- Ystard Mynach – Tesco and the library
Cllr. Ken James, Cabinet Member for Regeneration, Planning & Sustainable Development said:
“Our High Streets are full of fantastic independent businesses offering great service, products and advice with a personal touch. Small Business Saturday serves as an important reminder that these traders need our support in order to ensure a successful future. I would encourage residents and visitors alike to visit their nearest Town Centre and discover what the high street has to offer.”
There are also lots of festive events to be enjoyed in the lead up to Christmas, another great reason to head to the local high street. A full list of upcoming events can be found at www.caerphilly.gov.uk/events.
