Gosport MP praises new Small Business Saturday scheme
3:50pm Monday 23rd September 2013 in News
A HAMPSHIRE MP has praised an initiative that aims to promote small businesses to residents.
The event, on December 7, will feature unique deals from such retailers to entice shoppers in.
The initiative is being led by American Express in collaboration with British businesses, organisations and local authorities, and is supported by the Government.
It originated in America and President Barack Obama took part visiting his local bookshop in 2012.
Caroline said: “Small Business Saturday is a great way to get people in through the doors of our local independent retailers and see some of the unique and innovative products that they have to offer.”
She added that a number of local shops had opened in Gosport in the last few months, including an oriental cooking shop.
