Small business Saturday is held on the 1st December 2018 and is away to showcase small shops, retailers, cafes and restaurants all over the country. At such an important time of year for small businesses, it’s is so important that people get out and support them. Small shops in particular are the heart and life blood of towns and cities, they places personality and a uniqueness, without them everywhere would be the same. York has a great independent shopping vibe with some truly amazing and wonderful shops. So get out there and experience them for yourself.

Happy Shopping
