Aylesbury MP Rob Butler has urged customers to back local businesses as they reopen before Christmas. Rob visited some of the county’s wide range of entrepreneurs as part of Small Business Saturday.
Rob said: “We have some excellent independent small businesses in the constituency, and it was good to meet some of them on Saturday. I’m impressed by how they continue to innovate, with many now offering click-and-collect, takeaway and delivery services.”
Rob visited Jayne Richards Flowers, Aylesbury Music, Fruity Tooty greengrocers, The Coffee Tree, No.2 Pound Street deli, Rumsey’s Chcolates, McGrumpy and Snuffles pet shop, Jakeman Sports and Aylesbury Skateboards.
Reaching the end of its eighth year in the UK, Small Business Saturday celebrates small businesses and encourages consumers to use their local independent enterprises.
Rob added: “This Christmas it’s even more important to support our local companies which still face the pressures of coronavirus whilst they carry on providing services safely and carefully.
“These firms play an important role in encouraging more people to live, work, visit and invest in our community. I’m determined to help our local businesses thrive and I will continue to do everything I can to support them in Parliament.”
