A few years ago, when large shops and department stores were dominating our high streets, a new initiative started to help support the small business, particularly around Christmas. This has developed over time in different areas. We live in a village in the north west of England and to us this is about supporting our small local shops, and those people who have built up a business from their kitchen table which now sells nationwide.
For me, this quote sums it up:
“When you buy from a small business an actual person does a little dance”
and it’s true … we actually do!
