Open for Business
Several initiatives have been started to support small businesses that may have been affected by lockdown. These campaigns encourage people to shop locally, so as to help the local community recover.
The Amex Shop Small campaign is dedicated to supporting small business owners. Support the places you love and Shop Small with American Express.
