Blaby District Council is supporting the Small Business Saturday campaign and offering free parking in council run car parks in Blaby Town Centre and Narborough village to encourage people to shop local and stay longer.
Councillor Tony Greenwood MBE, portfolio folder for Planning, Economic Development and Housing Strategy, said:
“The first Saturday in December is always known to be one of the busiest days for Christmas shopping.
“This year we are encouraging people to swap the busy queues and traffic for some more relaxed retail therapy in our local centres. There’s a host of special gifts in store from local independent shops and free parking means you can stay longer at no expense.”
This national campaign is organised and promoted by the Forum of Private Business and is supported by Blaby District Council as one of a range of initiatives used to boost and regenerate local centres.
