Mid Ulster Buzzing For Small Business Saturday

Mid Ulster will be buzzing for ‘Small Business Saturday’ as the region’s towns prepare to celebrate the depth and breadth of its ‘shop local’ opportunities.
Part of a national campaign to encourage people to support local traders and businesses by looking at what’s on their doorsteps before opting to travel to major towns and cities, Small Business Saturday takes place on Saturday 7th December in the towns Cookstown, Dungannon and Magherafelt, together with Coalisland and Maghera.
Chair of Mid Ulster District Council, Councillor Martin Kearney has welcomed the support for Small Business Saturday:
“In Mid Ulster, we are lucky to have a large number of high quality, locally owned, independent retailers and businesses right on our doorstep. And at this time of year it is important to encourage residents to support our local businesses, particularly at a time when online shopping is so popular.
“Small Business Saturday reminds us all to ‘shop local’ and support the fantastic independent shops and businesses that are so important to our Mid Ulster economy. I am delighted that the Council is once again supporting this campaign and encourage everyone to shop local on the 7th December and every day of the year.”
