Small Business Saturday is an annual event that was created to encourage consumers to shop locally in person and online at small businesses.

This event takes place every December and is the perfect opportunity to support find local, small businesses during the holiday season.

Shopping small can make a huge difference to our local economy, not just on Small Business Saturday, but every day. Think about your spending habits and how you could perhaps steer away from that large online retailer (you know the one). Spending your money at a small business helps to stimulate the local economy and keep business booming within your local region.

Our Refurbs shops in Flint and Wrexham provide the perfect opportunity if you are looking to refurnish your home and support a small business. Their primary objectives are to provide affordable furniture, to provide work placement, training, and volunteering opportunities, to make people aware of the benefits of reusing and recycling, to reduce pollution and protect the environment, and promoting sustainable waste management practice.

Amy Clearly, Manager of refurbs said “we help the environment by stopping lots of good quality furniture from ending up in landfill sites. So not only will you be supporting a small business, but you’ll be also saving the planet!”
