Yate Shopping Centre is celebrating Small Business Saturday on 7thDecember when it will highlight the importance of independent traders.
With support from South Gloucestershire Council, the Centre will be helping its fourteen independent retailers promote their wares and services.
Andy Lowrey, Centre Manager, said: “We are one of several centres in the area that have been given funding by South Gloucestershire Council to help independent traders promote themselves in the run-up to Christmas. We also hope that the event might give potential traders the impetus to start a new business.
“Yate Shopping Centre values the independent sector as it sets us aside from many shopping destinations. We have a good balance of independent traders alongside the major national high street operators so visitors to Yate know that they’re not just visiting a normal shopping centre.
“On the day, the Centre will be festooned with artwork and balloons and we will be distributing leaflets, all backed by a social media campaign in advance.”
South Gloucestershire Council is supporting Small Business Saturday as part of its on-going effort to strengthen the vibrancy and vitality of town and district centres in South Gloucestershire. The council aims to support activities to encourage increased footfall in local high streets and town centres across the council’s area.
