Please mention Small Business Saturday and Bishop Auckland Town Team when claiming your special offer!
The Small Business Saturday campaign originated in the USA in 2010 and has been a great success.
Small businesses have reported increased footfall and takings not just on the day but thereafter.
The initiative was introduced in the UK in 2013 and received a very positive response from both businesses and customers over the last two years.
The Bishop Auckland Town Team wants to make Small Business Saturday a celebration of small, independent shops and services available in the town.
