Small Business Friday 2017

It’s that time of year again! Small Business Friday is here on Friday, 1st of September. What does this mean? It means you need to tell your friends, family, colleagues and whoever else you can think of to support their local small businesses this Friday.

Small Business Friday was started by the National Small Business Chamber (NSBC) as a way to mobilise the nation to help South African small businesses get off the ground. Supporting local companies enables them to grow to make a positive impact on our economy and not to mention an increase in employment.

So now you know, and what better way to celebrate the end of winter than splurging at your favourite local SA business. They may even have an online store so you won’t even have to leave your desk. PayFast supports small businesses by enabling them to get online in the quickest and simplest way possible. So get browsing this Friday and make a small business owner’s day. Here is a list of small businesses to whet your appetite.
