Llan's Shop Local drive joins national campaign

The Keep Llangollen Special (KLS) community group is arranging to have its next regular Buy Local Day coincide with the national Small Business Saturday to be held on December 6.

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.
The day itself takes place on the first shopping Saturday in December each year, but the campaign aims to have a lasting impact on small businesses.

Mike Edwards, of KLS, said: “We have asked Llangollen Chamber of Trade & Tourism and Cittaslow Llangollen to join us in promoting this event and we would like to appeal to all
Llangollen and Dee Valley businesses to become fully involved.
“We will be preparing and distributing posters and promotion material and I am the lead
KLS committee member on this initiative and I would be grateful if business owners would contact me at:”

He added: “I would strongly urge businesses and residents to fully back Small Business
Saturday which keeps money recirculating in our Local Economy to everyone's benefit.
“We are fortunate to have numerous and diverse local businesses run by hard-working local people which keeps Llangollen vibrant and viable, and we are asking residents to use those business or face lose them due to the difficult economic circumstances."
