Claire Perry Supports Small Business Saturday

Claire Perry MP is supporting Small Business Saturday on Saturday 7th December.  This is a grassroots campaign that encourages people to shop in local, small, independent businesses and use local services instead of national brands.

Commenting, Claire said:

"Big national chains do bring jobs to our communities but for every £1 spent in a big store, only 43p stays in the area whereas if we support a local business, 68p stays local.  Local businesses also provide us with a big choice and bring vibrancy to our high streets.  That is why I am making a big effort this Saturday and in the run up to Christmas to support as many local businesses as I can!"
