Monica Supports Small Business Saturday

As Christmas approaches, Monica Lennon encourages Lanarkshire residents to shop local and support Small Business Saturday on 2 December.

The event encourages communities to “shop small” and support the work of local entrepreneurs and small firms.

Monica commented:

“Small Business Saturday is a great opportunity to support local traders that go the extra mile to provide excellent customer service.

“By choosing to shop and spend locally, we can support workers and small businesses in our own communities.

“There are many thriving local businesses across Lanarkshire making an incredible contribution to the local economy and our high streets, but the impact of Covid-19 and the cost-of-living crisis has made trading conditions tough.

“Supporting small businesses can minimise the stress of festive preparations, which is one of the reasons I will be shopping local as much as possible.”
