Small Business Saturday is on 3rd December and is an initiative to spend local and support small businesses. This is the third year of the Irish campaign which profiles small businesses and encourages consumers to shop locally and support jobs and enterprises in their respective communities.

According to Retail Excellence, €10 spent locally is worth €40 to the economy in terms of supporting employment, supported communities and giving the business the opportunity to continue to operate year round. There are over 280,000 people working in the Retail industry across Ireland with the majority of these employed in small local stores.
