Wrexham has been chosen as a stop for the Small Business Saturday UK Tour along with 23 different towns and cities.

The iconic Small Business Saturday UK Tour, which leads up to Small Business Saturday on December 2, is back again this November.

Once again supported by BT Skills for Tomorrow, ‘The Tour’ will call at different towns and cities across the UK, visiting small businesses and shining a light on their contribution to the UK economy and local communities.

It will also offer a jampacked free daily programme of online events - including workshops, webinars, mentoring and inspiring entrepreneurial stories - open to all small businesses.

Starting in Inverness on Monday, October 30, ‘The Tour’ will travel across the UK for five weeks and will call at Wrexham, on Friday, November 10 between 10am-2pm.

Now in its 11th year in the UK, the campaign has grown significantly year on year encouraging people to shop small.

On Small Business Saturday customers are urged to go out and support all types of small businesses, online, in offices and stores with many hosting events and offering discounts.

Sam Rowlands, Member of the Welsh Parliament for North Wales, is delighted to see the national business tour choosing to stop in Wrexham.


The MS said: “I am a great fan of this national initiative which aims to highlight local businesses across the UK and Wales and ultimately encourages more people to shop small on Saturday, December 2.

“I have always been a great supporter of Small Business Saturday which inspires more and more people to support local business and buy locally sourced food and other products from their community. 

“I am delighted to see the tour calling at Wrexham and urge local businesses to make sure they take advantage of this and welcome them to the city.”

Small Business Saturday UK is a grassroots, non-political, non-commercial campaign, which highlights small business success and encourages consumers to ‘shop local’ and support small businesses in their communities.
