It's more important than ever that we do our best to support local businesses. That's why local MP Andrew Stephenson has launched a Shop Local 2024 Campaign, to promote our fantastic local businesses and show off what Pendle has to offer.
Our small businesses are the backbone of our local economy, employing our friends, family and neighbours. They make up 99.9% of UK business, employ almost 17 million people and contribute £2.4 trillion to the UK’s economy.
However, they need our support to survive and thrive. As important as having a day for small businesses is, they need our custom all year round. So please show your support by signing my campaign and shopping local in 2024.
