Shop Small in Mission Hills


Updated 11/26/2018: Photos are now available from Shop Small Mission Hills 2018!

Thank you to all who made Shop Small Mission Hills 2018 a great success! Read more about the event and see some photos from the day’s festivities on our Shop Small 2018 Wrap Up.

This holiday season, Mission Hills is all for small! Shop Small and celebrate your favorite local spots in our community.



Shop Small is a movement — fueled by individual shoppers, business owners, and organizers who encourage shopping small all year long because they know it matters. Shopping small is more than just the act of shopping at small businesses. It’s a feeling — of walking into that corner coffee shop where they always know your order or of settling in at that tiny theater your dad used to take you. And it’s a cause — one that supports local economies and promotes vibrant, diverse communities.

The Mission Hills Business Improvement District is a partner with American Express in this year’s November 24th Shop Small.
