Small Business Saturday on tour
NICKY Morgan and Love Loughborough are working in partnership to celebrate Small Business Saturday this year and are pleased to welcome the Small Business Saturday Bus Tour on Monday, November 12, to showcase the town’s wide range of independent shops and traders.
The bus will visit the Market Place, as part of a national tour, and will be in Loughborough from 10am until 4pm on the day itself.
The tour is devised both for members of the public to see what the town’s independent retail sector offers to shoppers; as well as providing mentor opportunities to small businesses.
The visit will include a ‘Business on Board’ opportunity for 20 small businesses to market themselves to the public and across the Small Business Saturday campaign’s social media channel.
For more information, and to sign up for mentoring opportunities and ‘Business on Board’ please visit https://smallbusinesssaturdayuk.com/.
Mrs Morgan said: “I am delighted to welcome the Small Business Bus Tour to Loughborough which is great news for the town and encourages local small businesses to sign up and take part in the mentoring sessions and the ‘Business on Board’ registration.
“This is a great opportunity for small businesses to promote themselves both locally and nationally through the Small Business Saturday social media and website too.”
Lisa Brown, Love Loughborough BID Manager added: “Love Loughborough BID fully backs the Small Business Saturday campaign and having the Bus Tour come to Loughborough is a great honour.
“The town has a wealth of local small independent businesses and the Bus Tour will give them a great opportunity to showcase what they have on offer.”
