Last week, Vicki Strudwick, of Beauty Gallery, tweeted Theo about the family run business during ‘Small Business Sunday’ and was one of six weekly winners to gain a retweet by Theo to his 500,000 Twitter followers.  The weekly initiative, set up by Theo in 2010, now has over 2200 #SBS winners and supports small businesses in the UK.

Business and retail entrepreneur and self-confessed Shopkeeper, Theo re‐tweeted  Beauty Gallery’s message to his almost 500,000 followers and as a result, the Beauty Gallery Twitter account saw an increase of more than 100 followers on the social media platform on the Monday evening as well as seeing a significant spike in traffic to their website  after the Retweet. They are now also profiled on the #SBS website ( that is exclusive to all Small Business Sunday winners.

Vicki Strudwick  said “Since joining my Mum, Mandy Painting, at the salon she started I've been working hard at promoting our social media accounts to reflect the growing business. I'm delighted to be recognised on Twitter by Theo Paphitis in this way. It's going to help raise the salon's profile immensely and we are so grateful. The future is looking extremely bright!”

Small business champion and Ryman Stationery, Robert Dyas and Boux Avenue Chairman, Theo Paphitis, said: “We are thrilled to welcome new #SBS members every week and highlight just how important it is to support our small businesses here in the UK.  My vision is that everyone who has ever won an #SBS re-tweet from me becomes part of a friendly club; like-minded individuals who can share successes and learnings. The website will also give a valuable profile to the winners chosen and I wish Beauty Gallery every success.”

Anyone looking for a re‐tweet from Theo should tweet him about their business on Sunday between 5 PM and 7.30 PM and include the hashtag #SBS. Six lucky businesses are re‐tweeted every Monday at 8 PM and then invited to enter their profile on the new website, attend the annual #SBS networking event and take advantage of the networking opportunities.
