Ahead of Small Business Saturday, Rhun ap Iorwerth has once again pledged to support small local businesses and encouraged others to do the same, whilst urging Welsh Government to prioritise support of small businesses going forward.
Saturday December 1st is Small Business Saturday, and figures outline that Wales’ 240,000 small to medium businesses turnover £46bn a year, showing how vital small and medium enterprises are to the country’s economy.
With Small Business Saturday this weekend, Mr ap Iorwerth is once again encouraging people to shop locally to celebrate the contribution smaller businesses make to the Welsh economy.
Mr ap Iorwerth said:
“It is Small Business Saturday this weekend, and once again I’m encouraging the people of Anglesey to support small businesses and the high street this weekend, but also to pledge to do so all year round.
“Small businesses on our high streets are so essential in terms of the strength of our economy, but they’re also very important to us socially, too, and I think finding better ways to support small businesses should be a priority for Welsh Government.
“So this Small Business Saturday why not make a pledge? Spend a tenner in a local small business. That money being spent locally will go a very long way indeed, so remember to support small businesses not just on Small Business Saturday, but every day where possible in the future.”
