Steve McCabe MP shows support for local businesses in run up to Small Business Saturday

Steve McCabe MP for Birmingham Selly Oak, has joined Shadow Business Secretary Chuka Umunna MP in celebrating the contribution of small firms in Birmingham as part of this year’s Small Business Saturday on 6 December.


Small Business Saturday is a grass-roots campaign that encourages people to shop locally and support small businesses in the local community. Last year it was the biggest celebration of small businesses in the UK and gave a boost to local shops through extra trade of nearly £500m.


Steve McCabe MP is encouraging local businesses to take part this year and take advantage of the campaign to focus on small business on a key shopping day in the year in the run-up to Christmas. It also aims to give a long-term boost to trade and give a lift to the high streets. And Steve is encouraging local people to shop locally in small firms as part of Small Business Saturday.


Steve said: “It is so important that we support our small and independent businesses. They are a vital part of our local economy and local community and we need to get behind them.


“Last year’s Small Business Saturday was a big success and it was brilliant to meet so many great businesses doing a fantastic job. The campaign helped raise awareness of what they do and the choice they bring to our community. We all need to put our hands in our pockets to make sure we back our local businesses. This year I’ll be getting fully behind the campaign again and giving my support to our local businesses. I hope lots of people go out and shop local on Saturday 6 December too.”
