Saturday 2nd December marked the fifth annual Small Business Saturday, which encourages consumers to 'shop local' and support small businesses in their communities.
Local MP Jo Swinson visited Thomas Muir coffee shop in Huntershill Village, Bishopbriggs, to show her support.
Commenting on her visit, Ms Swinson said:
“I was delighted to celebrate Small Business Saturday with delicious empire biscuits at Thomas Muir coffee shop.
“This day is a great opportunity to recognise the excellent and often creative work that local businesses do. We pay tribute to the hardworking owners and employees whose efforts are valued by all of those in the community.
“With Christmas approaching and gift-buying well underway, now is an ideal time to support local shops, and help the local economy at the same time.”
