On 5th December 2020 Fanattik is taking part in Small Business Saturday but what is it and why are we doing it?
We all know about Black Friday and Cyber Monday but Small Business Saturday does exactly what it says on the tin, it’s a day dedicated to supporting small businesses and this year it’s more important than ever. It originated in the US but is in its 8th year in the UK and continues to get bigger and bigger. According to the website, an estimated £800m was spent in small businesses on last year’s Small Business Saturday. The types of businesses involved include family businesses, local shops, online businesses, wholesalers, business services and small manufacturers.
Why is Fanattik getting involved?
We are a family-owned, independent business based in a picturesque Cheshire village. You can read about how Anthony & Louise started the business (from their spare room) in 2009 but let’s get Back to the Future and tell you a little bit about what life at Fanattik looks like today. Despite working with some of the biggest film and gaming studios in the world on titles such as Jurassic Park, Jaws, Resident Evil, Cuphead and Yu-Gi-Oh! to create licensed gifts and limited edition collectibles, we are in fact a lean, keen, creating machine of eight. From product development, design, logistics & warehousing, sales & marketing, our multi-talented team have it covered. Although we may have spent most of this year physically apart, we are a close-knit bunch who like nothing more than to get geeky gaming and, well, fanatic about film. Small Business Saturday on 5th December 2020 will be the first time we’ve taken part and we can’t wait.
What are we offering on Small Business Saturday?
With thanks from our family to yours for all your support in 2020, we will be including a free gift with every purchase made at Fanattik.co.uk on Saturday 5th December (and Sunday 6th December, because why not?!). The free gift will be hand-selected by our team, based on what you’ve ordered from us and we hope you like it!
