Altrincham Supports Small Business Saturday

December 3, 2013 2:19 pm

Saturday December 7th is Small Business Saturday, a day to celebrate and support small businesses and all they do for their communities. The first of its kind in the UK, it aims to encourage everyone in the UK to support small businesses, both on the day and beyond.

Altrincham is getting behind Small Business Saturday and will be showcasing the growing number of quality, independent businesses that are helping to make Altrincham original.

A number of local businesses are taking part and there will be money saving and other interesting offers to encourage the town’s shoppers to explore and discover something new on the run up to Christmas.

For those who fancy a spot of pampering, Oxford One Spa on Oxford Road will be offering free goodie bags, face mapping and 50% off vouchers to all new clients. Treat your loved ones to a special Christmas gift at Lepps Jewellers on Railway Road, where you will receive 15% discount. When you’ve worked up an appetite, call in to Scalini Deli who will be serving up delicious continental style coffee and Italian bites, with 10% off your purchase.

A Small Business Clinic offering free, impartial advice will also be taking place at the Altrincham Forward Office on Shaws Road, opposite the market, for those interested in setting up a business in Altrincham. The Town Centre team will be on hand to offer advice and support on getting your business off the ground. No appointment is necessary, just pop in between 11am-2pm.

All local businesses can enter a prize draw and win the chance to get valuable one-to-one business advice from a panel of experts.

Altrincham Town Centre Manager, Paul Armstrong said: “This initiative is the chance for the public to support small business in Altrincham on one of the busiest shopping days of the year. Our small businesses add a great deal to the shopping offer in Altrincham and it’s great that a day has been created to support and recognise their contribution.”

Executive Councillor Michael Hyman said: “Small Business Saturday is a fantastic idea and a real opportunity for small businesses to showcase their product. The small business clinic is a great way of getting free, impartial advice and I would urge anyone who is contemplating setting up their own business to pop in and have a chat with the experts.”

A full list of offers will be available on the day from the Altrincham Forward office as well on Twitter @AltrinchamFWD. They will also be serving coffee and mince pies, a chance to take a break from shopping and rest those weary legs. Pop in and say hello!
