Small Business Saturday
Black Friday? Cyber Monday? Not for us.
At Mara, we’re all about quality, not quantity. That’s why our sustainably hand-harvested, seasonal seaweed wasn't discounted on Black Friday.
Instead, we’ve chosen to support Small Business Saturday on December 2nd, with a special offer just for loyal Mara fans.
A thank you
This weekend, spend £24.99 or more with us and we'll send you a FREE gift tasting tin, worth £12.99. (The offer is valid on orders placed before midnight GMT Sunday 3rd December.)
The gift selection is perfect for Secret Santa, the relative who has everything, or just as a little something for yourself! The tin contains three beautifully presented glass tubes with cork stoppers, showcasing Mara's core range of pure seaweed flakes, Shony, Kombu and Dulse, in a delicate and sophisticated way.
(Psst... The rest of the year, the best deals go exclusively to our newsletter subscribers - so make sure you've signed up.)
Why Small Business Saturday matters
Small Business Saturday aims to recognise the £1.8 trillion that SMEs and local enterprises contribute to the UK economy every year. A grassroots initiative launched in response to Black Friday, the campaign has been running in the UK since 2012.
But buying from independent retailers isn't just about cash value. It's what your spending power can do for your community, by building relationships and supporting livelihoods.
Mara employs 15 people locally in Edinburgh and Fife, and works to support coastal communities at home and further afield. Many of our lovely local stockists are also small businesses. If you live in Scotland, why not stop by one of them this weekend and support us both?
