Belfast's shopping heritage is to be celebrated during Small Business Saturday.

Independent traders around Northern Ireland will be marking the day of celebration for small shops this Saturday - a tradition started in America.

Suitor Menswear is one retailer which is taking part, and it was identified by the official Small Business Saturday movement as a firm reflecting the diversity of UK small businesses.

Hugh Black, president of Belfast Chamber of Trade and Commerce, said: "Belfast Chamber of Trade and Commerce welcomes once again the Small Business Saturday campaign, which supports independent businesses - the backbone of our local economy.

"We are proud that one of our members has been selected to represent the diversity of the UK's small businesses ahead of Small Business Saturday this December."

Chris Suitor of Suitor Menswear added: "We have been delighted that our position as one of the leading menswear specialists has been put on the UK map."

And Glyn Roberts, chief executive of the Northern Ireland Independent Retail Trade Association, said: "Independent retailers are making a serious comeback in Northern Ireland and offer something different to multiple retailers."
