Join in our ‘Seek out Santa’ Trail, as part of this year’s Small Business Saturday celebration on 2 December 2017, and be in with a chance to win a fabulous Christmas hamper.
Borough of Poole and the Poole BID (Business Improvement District) have teamed up with many small independent shops and businesses across four shopping areas around the borough (Poole Town Centre, Ashley Cross, Ashley Road and Broadstone) to create the ‘Seek out Santa’ Trail.
So if you’re starting to think about Christmas shopping, why not help our local businesses by supporting them in the lead up to Christmas. With many great promotions and deals on offer, and a fabulous Christmas hamper up for grabs, the competition is a chance for shoppers and visitors to browse, eat and shop their way around the borough whilst collecting stickers from five participating shops for the opportunity to enter the prize draw! The competition runs from Saturday 2 December to 10am on Monday 18 December 2017.
Local bicycle shop, Cycle Paths is one of the twenty small businesses taking part in the ‘Seek out Santa’ Trail. Ray Clift, owner of Cycle Paths in Poole Town Centre said: “Small Business Saturday is important to us as the public can focus on the benefits of shopping locally with a small family run business and we can build relationships with our customers. We are supporting the 'Seek out Santa' Trail on Saturday 2 December to have fun and encourage families to explore Poole and to discover new shops.”
Commenting, Cllr Mohan Iyengar, Cabinet Portfolio Holder for the Economy, Borough of Poole, said: “We’ll keep supporting Small Business Saturday with enthusiasm – expanding it and bringing in more and more businesses who want to take part.”
Jonathan Sibbett, Chair Poole BID added: “Small Business Saturday is a great opportunity for the local community to get behind its small businesses and to really appreciate the vitality which they contribute to the area.”
Visit the Poole BID website to download the ‘Seek out Santa’ Trail leaflet or pick one up in your local Poole Library, Poole Tourist Information Centre (within Poole Museum) or at one of the 20 participating stores. Good luck!
