There are increasing calls for people to shun online shopping on Black Friday and Cyber Monday and instead support their local, independent shops when it comes to Christmas shopping.

Small Business Saturday is a non-commercial campaign that highlights independent businesses and encourages consumers to ‘shop local’, whether that be in store or online.

So we decided to go out and about in the Mansfield area to find nine small, independent stores that are bravely standing on their own two feet and providing what shoppers want.

Of course, there are many others worthy of praise and respect, but these nine have been selected either because of their longevity, or because they have received rave reviews online in recent months.

It is estimated that 14.5 million people supported last year’s Small Business Saturday in the UK, spending £1.1 billion with small companies.

So why not give your backing to our nine, based on Google Reviews, this weekend?
