"The whole experience of buying from a small retailer was fantastic and left me not only with a brilliant product, but also a great feeling that I'd supported someone living their dream."
It's not an easy time to be a small business owner. A recent report from the Simply Business Support Hub suggests that as of November 2020, Covid-19 could cost small businesses up to £69 billion in total. That's right, billion not million!
234,000 small businesses have already stopped trading (and counting) and one in five small businesses are contemplating the possibility of not surviving any further lockdowns.
But there are rays of sunshine amidst the clouds.
According to the same report, 85% of small businesses intend to remain self-employed, 10% are planning to start a new business and one in five have adopted new technologies to help them adapt. Now is not the time to give up, now is the time to get behind our small businesses and support them in any way we can!
