We Love Amex Shop Small! – Thanks to the American Express Shop Small Business team for inviting Estella to join a select group of vendors in launching the holiday shopping season for small business nationwide. Yesterday, Amex converted the lobby of its global headquarters downtown Manhattan into a shopping mall. Then it invited the more than 7000 occupants of the building to come to kick off the holiday season for small businesses and to promote Small Business Saturday, Saturday, November 26th, two days after Thanksgiving and a day after Black Friday.
We had a great time, we were honored to be invited and moreover, we appreciate Amex’s support of small business. As the “Occupy” movement and others fear corporate greed and large corporations ignoring the little people, it is great to see that Amex cares for small business and does something about. Please join their efforts, support, not just Estella, but all small businesses by going out on the Saturday after Thanksgiving and shopping small. Go to your neighborhood mom and pop and see what hand-made, specialty gifts they have to offer before you go to the big box retailers.
