Small Business Saturday

It’s been a challenging few years for everyone and the retail sector has been impacted massively since the initial lockdown of 2020.

The Federation of Small Business suggests there were 5.9 million small businesses at the start of 2020 and SMEs account for three fifths of the employment and around half of turnover in the UK private sector. Small Businesses are a vital part of the UK economy and have faced a challenging year. (Figures obtained from the Department for Business, Innovation & Skills).

Small Business Saturday is fast approaching on the 4th December and promotes the use of small businesses to millions of customers and the campaign wants all kinds of small businesses to get involved. HETAS fully supports small businesses and with hundreds of approved retailers signed up to the HETAS scheme, it’s an ideal opportunity to showcase the range of products you have available in your showroom.
