Keeping It Local this after-Thanksgiving shopping weekend. The Arts District will be in full swing with art, food and community if you'd rather avoid the throngs of pushy shoppers at the mega malls (or come by afterwards). And what about the day after Black Friday? It's called Small Business Saturday. American Express launched the campaign last year, offering customers a $25 credit for shopping at a qualifying business on that day.Buy local at a qualifying business with your American Express card.
Just register your AmEx card for the event at THIS link, and use it to spend $25 (or more) tomorrow, Saturday, November 26th at qualifying local businesses to receive $25 credit back on your card! A few of my favorite local businesses include: Re-Tale, Urban Artware, Haute Chocolate, Camino Bakery, The Other Half Gallery, Device Print Shop and Krankies Coffee at the Airstream, a/perture Cinema and 6th Sense Massage & Wellness. Hey, that reads like my Christmas wish list. Take a hint, mom and avoid the mall traffic!
