Chamber promotes Burnham's shops on Small Business Saturday

Small Business Saturday was marked in Burnham-On-Sea with a promotional campaign by the town's Chamber of Trade encouraging shoppers to support local shops.

Across the country, the nationwide Small Business Saturday scheme aims to encourage people to use small shops and traders in their area, with Burnham's Chamber of Trade & Commerce leading the initiative locally.

To take advantage of the national event, the Chamber published a promotional leaflet featuring discounts, special offers and new product launches, many of which were available only on Small Business Saturday.

Around 500 paper copies were handed out at Burnham's Christmas Lights switch while the digital version was available on Black Friday exclusively on

A spokesman for the Chamber of Trade said: "If we all, whenever practical, use local businesses, then across the board everyone will benefit by keeping money in our local economy and creating jobs."

"Burnham Chamber of Trade is pleased to have organised this marketing initiative to encourage shoppers to support our local businesses this Christmas, and our thanks go to Positive Wealth Creation Ltd for its support in producing the leaflet."
