How you can get involved
The Small Business Saturday website has four steps for small businesses to get involved in the day.
Many small businesses take part by hosting events on the day and offering discounts to customers.
Customers can get involved by using the Small Business Finder to find local businesses for their purchases. They are also encouraged to post photos of themselves supporting local businesses with the #SmallBizSatUK hashtag.
