Shop Small 2020 – Become a Neighborhood Champion

Shop Small 2020 – Become a Neighborhood Champion

In past years, the Mission Hills BID has partnered with American Express to encourage the community to Shop Small on Small Business Saturday. Reminisce on the incredible Winter Sleigh of 2019 and the charming Gingerbread Shop of 2018!

This year, due to the coronavirus pandemic, while a centralized Shop Small event will not be taking place, the Mission Hills BID will continue to be a strong advocate by spreading the word to Shop Small all season long in order to help support our local businesses.

If you or your business would like to apply to be a “Neighborhood Champion” the Shop Small Team at American Express has shared the information below with the Mission Hills BID.

Don’t forget to share!
Be sure to tag the Mission Hills BID on Instagram, Facebook, and Twitter with all of your Shop Small posts. We love to re-share your content to help expand your audience! #MissionHillsSD
