The shopping silly season has begun. We've had Black Friday and Cyber Monday... now it's time to turn our attention to Small Business Saturday, 7th December.
What's all the fuss about?
This fantastic campaign is about focusing on the smaller businesses in the high street - your local butcher, independent gift store or the little bakery that makes sweet treats to die for! We hear so many complaints about how the high street is becoming a carbon copy of itself - no matter what town you visit, they all look the same. The only way to ensure every high street doesn't merge into one is to support your local independent businesses, this Saturday and beyond.
It's simple - use them or lose them.
Of course thebestof Bromley Borough is all about buying local, so we're delighted to support our high street heroes and give the campaign a big shout out.
And there's an even great incentive for getting involved on Saturday if you have an American Express credit card.
Spend £10 or more on your Amex card at any small business participating in the event and Amex will give you a £5 statement credit - one per business, in as many places as you like. The only thing you need to do is register your card before the day at amexshopsmall.co.uk/register.
We've all heard of the saying "you don't get something for nothing" but in this case you actually do!
And a great way to check which of your high street retailers in Bromley Borough are involved in the campaign is to visit amexshopsmall.co.uk/map .
Why not use Small Business Saturday as an excuse to kick off your Christmas shopping and get yourself some cash back at the same time!
Be part of Small Business Saturday this weekend.
Don't miss out on this big day for small businesses.
