We can all do our bit to shop at lo­cal firms

Paisley Daily Express - - A Newlandscape -

Small Busi­ness Satur­day was held at the week­end and it was an op­por­tu­nity to show­case the fan­tas­tic lo­cal busi­nesses in Ren­frew­shire and to en­cour­age peo­ple to shop lo­cally.

In the era of Ama­zon and eBay, it’s very easy to do the ma­jor­ity of our shop­ping on­line, not re­al­is­ing the great busi­nesses that we have right on our doorstep.

To pro­mote Small Busi­ness Satur­day, I was out and about vis­it­ing var­i­ous lo­cal firms.

First up was An­gel­wax, in Ren­frew, which re­cently won the ROCCO Award for Out­stand­ing Busi­ness with five or less staff.

An­gel­wax de­vel­ops and de­signs a range of award-win­ning pre­mium de­tail­ing prod­ucts for the au­to­mo­tive in­dus­try

I then vis­ited Har­rods Dry Clean­ers to con­grat­u­late Adil Khan on win­ning the ROCCO Award for Young Busi­ness Per­son of the Year.

Har­rods Dry Clean­ers are based in Bridge of Weir and take pride in their seven-stage clean­ing process to en­sure that all of their cus­tomers’ in­di­vid­ual re­quire­ments are met.

An­gel­wax and Har­rods Dry Clean­ers were just two of the many busi­nesses I popped into over the week­end and they were a re­minder of the fan­tas­tic small and medium-sized en­ter­prise sec­tor we have in Ren­frew­shire.

I’d en­cour­age every­one to take the time to shop lo­cal and visit the many great busi­nesses that are on of­fer in our towns and vil­lages.
