American Express has a long history of backing high streets across the UK, which is why it is dedicated to helping the small businesses, and people behind them, to thrive.
Understanding that we can all achieve more in business if someone has our back, American Express is there to support its customers in big ways and small.
From actively encouraging people to shop small, alongside its role as founder and principal supporter of Small Business Saturday in the UK – now in its seventh year, through to helping small businesses manage their finances or providing peace of mind. American Express is always on hand as a source of helpful advice and inspiration.
Understanding that small businesses and the people that run them have a unique place in local communities across the UK, American Express wants to shine a light on the benefits of shopping small. From the expertise offered through to the feeling of being known when ordering the ‘usual,’ American Express will help to deliver loyal, repeat customers who over time can become your advocates.
We recently created a Shop Small Magazine, in partnership with Courier, a leading voice in the sector and champion of small businesses. For us, it was a natural collaboration due to our shared passion for backing small business; helping consumers to discover them and shining a light on the people behind them. You can see some of the highlights from the Magazine here.
