And Bob's your uncle, with less than a month to go, we thought it only right to give you all a nudge in the right direction, since Small Business Saturday is back.

Inspired by Small Business Saturday in the States, the day itself takes place on the first shopping Saturday in December each year, but with an aim to make a lasting impact on small businesses and the consumers' mindset to 'shop local ' throughout the year.
With the small business and shop opener taking a small hammering over the last few years, it's fab to see initiatives like this get the coverage they deserve.
The SBS organisers are wanting all kinds of small businesses to get involved, be it a family business, local shop, online business, wholesaler or small manufacturer.
