Hyslop Encourages Shopping Local this Christmas

In advance of Small Business Saturday this weekend (Dec 3rd) Fiona Hyslop, MSP for the Linlithgow Constituency, is encouraging her constituents to shop local this Christmas.

Fiona said;

“Small Businesses are at the heart of our communities, so it’s quite right that they should be highlighted and supported over the festive period.

“West Lothian has huge variety of independent, locally run businesses, such as Again Clothing Shop in Whitburn, Boghall Butchers in Bathgate or ‘A Wee mindin’ in Linlithgow. Each business offers its town something unique and special.

“If they’ve not already started, I would encourage my constituents to kick off their Christmas shopping this Saturday (Dec 3rd) – a day dedicated to recognising small businesses – and shop local this Christmas.”


Notes on Small Business Saturday:

Small Business Saturday UK is a grassroots, non-commercial campaign, which highlights small business success and encourages consumers to ‘shop local’ and support small businesses in their communities.

The day itself takes place on the first Saturday in December each year, but the campaign aims to have a lasting impact on small businesses. In 2016 Small Business Saturday will take place on Saturday, December 3rd.
