House of Rothach, a candle and home fragrance brand based in Stevenston, North Ayrshire, Scotland, will be featured as part of this year’s Small Biz 100, a national campaign highlighting some of the United Kingdom’s most inspiring small businesses.
House of Rothach, founded by Niki Munro in 2019, will be placed in the spotlight on Oct. 23, 2020, with giveaways and offers lined up for its social media followers and email subscribers.
Marking 100 days building up to Small Business Saturday on Dec. 5, 2020, the Small Biz 100 provides a major profile boost to small businesses across the United Kingdom. Showcasing a daily celebration of the Small Biz 100 through social media, the campaign aims to support and celebrate a range of small, community-driven businesses across the United Kingdom.
“I feel very privileged for my business to have been chosen as one of the U.K.’s most inspiring small businesses and I’m super eager and excited about the opportunities and value this is going to bring with it this year and the years to come,” said Munro. “I’m also hoping I’ll have a super busy December thanks to the nation ‘shopping small’ on Small Business Saturday 5th December this year.”
Michelle Ovens MBE, director of Small Business Saturday UK, said: “Congratulations to House of Rothach for joining the Small Biz 100! This campaign highlights the amazing, positive impact small firms have on communities across the U.K. Given the phenomenally tough time small businesses have had, and the special role they played supporting communities in lockdown, it’s vital we continue to support them as this crisis continues. This year’s Small Business Saturday is going to be the most important one yet, and we’re determined it will also be the best.”
Now in its eighth year in the United Kingdom, Small Business Saturday has grown significantly each year, with a record turnout of 17.6 million people choosing to shop small on the day last year, generating an estimated £800 million.
Among the other firms being recognised are a family run florist in Bristol, a beauty salon in Inverness and a wine school in Chester.
