Fort Pierce – Main Street Fort Pierce announced today that, as a member of the American Express® Neighborhood Champion Program and in partnership with the Downtown Business Alliance, it will host an event as part of Small Business Saturday, which takes place on Nov 30. Created by American Express in 2010, Small Business Saturday celebrates the impact small businesses have on communities across the country.
Win a Downtown Shopping Spree for over $1300. Pick up a passport at Chic & Shore Things, get 8 participating businesses signed off, and return passport to Notions & Potions to be entered to win by 7pm (no purchases required)!!! Last year we gave a $1500 spree. Winner takes all. One passport per person. Must be 18 or older. You do not need to be present to win.
This year’s celebration is the 10th Annual Small Business Saturday, marking a decade of support from American Express for local business owners. Since it started in 2010, consumers have reported spending an estimated $103 billion across all Small Business Saturdays combined. 1 That’s $103 billion toward helping communities thrive, spent over just nine days alone.
In order to drive shoppers to Shop Small® this Nov 30, Main Street Fort Pierce is participating in the American Express® Neighborhood Champion Program to spotlight small businesses and the impact they have on communities. An average two-thirds of every dollar ($0.67) spent at a small business in the U.S. stays in that local community.2 That means shopping small could help bring things like better schools, smoother roads, and new jobs to neighborhoods across the country.
