Special offers for Small Business Saturday!

Southsea Bathinghut

Seeded will be hosting an event from 10am to 4pm, including festive tunes from Portsmouth City Band from 10am to 12pm.

Alexsis Seed, of the store, said: "It's really important for us as a small independent business to get involved each year. It's also a great opportunity for us to engage with our customers and the wider community to speak to them about what the Seeded creative community is about, over a mince pie and mulled apple juice."

Southsea Bathing Hut will be trading at the Love Southsea Market on Palmerston Road, and running a special offer for Saturday only. Any customer at the market who quotes "Small Business Saturday" will receive a free travel-size artisan soap bar with any purchase they make.

To help support the event, Portsmouth City Council is offering free parking all day on 2 December, at:

  • Wootton Street car park, Cosham

  • London Road car park, Cosham

  • Stubbington Avenue car park, North End

  • Ashby Place car park, Southsea

  • Clarence Street car park in the city centre

Cllr Donna Jones, Leader of the Council, said: "We're backing Small Business Saturday because we know the value of local independent companies. They add character and colour to our shopping streets and they're a crucial part of the city's economy."
