This years Shop Local Saturday is being held on the 6th December, and is being sponsored by Pinnacle Letting Agency. Shop Local Saturday is an event organised by local group Newport Rises. The aim of the event is to promote local independent traders and to get shoppers to spend their money in local shops to help the local economy.
Paul Halliday, one of the organisers of this years Shop Local event had this to say about the event,
“It’s exciting to have Pinnacle Letting supporting local shops.
“Their sponsorship of the event is going to help us make this year’s Shop Local Saturday even bigger and better than last year.
“Just imagine what we could achieve for the city if each person just spent £10 in local shops.
“Newport Rises are looking forward to the day and to working with Pinnacle Letting. More announcements about the day will be made over the coming weeks.”
On the day there are special offers and promotions held in different stores during the day and free, reusable shopping bags are going to be given out on the day.
So keep the December 6th free to do all of your Christmas shopping and support your local traders!
