Supporting small businesses during the festive season has never been more important than it has this year.
Christmas trade makes up for a considerable chunk of many small businesses’ annual turnover. The reality for many small business owners this year is that due to spending most of 2020 in lockdown, this Christmas is a vital time which could mean make or break.
So what can we do to help? At Oggadoon we have put together a list of small businesses to support this festive period. Here is a compilation of everything from stocking fillers for loved ones, to support-bubble restaurant take-aways and treat-yourself salon visits.
More than just a nail salon, Buff Bar pride themselves in creating a safe and accessible environment for all. LGBTQIA+, BAME and PoC friendly, and using high quality vegan products, Buff Bar offers an artistic healing experience.
Gift cards available.
An independent beauty salon offering a wide range of treatments for men and women ranging from facials and massages to ear candling.
