Formby MP, Bill Esterson backs Small Business Saturday

Sefton Central Labour MP and Shadow Business Minister Bill Esterson Will be celebrating the contribution of small firms in Formby, Crosby and Maghull as part of this year’s Small Business Saturday on December 3rd. Consumers are being encouraged to ‘shop small’ and celebrate the contribution of entrepreneurs and small firms this weekend. Launched in 2013, Small Business Saturday brought a boost to local high streets across the country. Last year’s Small Business Saturday saw customers spent £623m with small businesses– a 24% increase on Small Business Saturday in 2014. Bill Esterson MP is backing local businesses to take advantage of the campaign on a key shopping day in the year in the run-up to Christmas and encouraging local people to shop locally in small firms as part of Small Business Saturday. The day aims to give a long-term boost to trade and give a lift to the high streets. Bill Esterson MP said: “I am looking forward to backing our local small shops and independent businesses on Small Business Saturday. We should do all we can to thank them for the vital contribution they make to the local economy, adding to the local community and boosting diversity on the High Street. This is really important in Crosby, Maghull and Formby where we have excellent independent retailers but where they all need extra help. “It will be fantastic to build on the success we achieved with Small Business Saturday in the last three years locally, which is why I’m getting behind the campaign again and giving my support to local businesses. There are lots of great businesses across Sefton and the campaign is a great way of raising awareness and helping boost trade.” Bill Esterson MP, Labour’s Shadow Business Minister, said: “Since 2013 the UK has come together to celebrate the contribution our millions of small businesses make to local communities and the national economy. Small Business Saturday is about reminding people that small firms fuel our economy – whether they are retailers, exporters, construction companies, start-ups of any kind – this is about a long-term commitment to the people who create local jobs and add diversity to our high streets. “Small businesses face huge challenges, from late payments and accessing finance to uncertainty over Brexit’s impact on trade and prices. Labour wants to give them the level playing field and help they need to grow”. For more on Small Business Saturday see
