Creative Roundup – Small Business Saturday – 10 of our Favourite Small Independent Shops in South Belfast
We have our decorations up, it’s Christmas time and its Christmas shopping time and it’s Small Business Saturday. Buying from local businesses helps support the local economy and helps our city thrive. We are very lucky to have our Malone studios close to the Lisburn Road, Stranmillis Road and Botanic which all have a great selection of small independent businesses, meaning we can do our Christmas shopping in our lunch break! For this week’s Creative Roundup because it’s Small Business Saturday and it’s Christmas shopping season we are highlighting 10 of our favourites of these independent retail businesses close to our Malone studios that are perfect for Christmas shopping or just for treating yourself.
