Businesses in Calderdale are getting ready to celebrate Small Business Saturday on December 5.
Now in its sixth year, Small Business Saturday is the UK's most successful small business campaign, which last year saw an estimated £748m spent with small businesses across the country.
Calderdale Council are asking shoppers to keep it local this weekend by doing all, or most, shopping with independent small businesses in the lead up to Christmas.
Calderdale Markets will be open as usual and will provide a one-stop-shop for people to shop locally this Small Business Saturday.
Cabinet Member for Regeneration and Economic Development, Barry Collins said: “Calderdale has so many fantastic local businesses and this Small Business Saturday we’d like to encourage people to discover the many benefits of shopping locally.
“As well as lots of independent shops around the borough, our markets are packed with friendly, independent stall holders who will be more than happy to help you support local businesses this Saturday."
