It's Small Business Saturday - a great time to look at all the amazing small businesses in East Renfrewshire, and to support them with our custom wherever we can. Our high streets are absolutely full of brilliant businesses, who offer fantastic choice, customer service, and all while supporting our local economy and local jobs.
I've highlighted just some of their fantastic achievements in an Early Day Motion, which notes that recently F & M Hairdressing of Barrhead has been awarded Best Salon Team of the Year Lucali by Andiamo and Toni's Pizzeria of Giffnock, and Villaggio Pizza of Eaglesham have been Highly Commended in the Scottish Italian Awards
That's just scratching the surface of the fantastic local businesses we have. It's a good day to get the Christmas shopping underway on our local high streets, and to support all the brilliant businesses that are so important in all our communities. I'm delighted that the Scotland Loves Local Gift Card campaign is up and running, sharing information, offers and news about our local businesses, and I'm looking forward to being able to say I have finally started my Christmas shopping, with some local purchases...
