2018 American Express Shop Small Business Saturday at the AAE Gift Shop of Chicago

On Saturday November 24, 2018. The Absolutely Anything Essential Gift Shop of Chicago ALONG with over 25 collaborators will aim to reach over 200 community residents, entrepreneurs and representatives through collaborating with neighboring businesses, small business experts, entrepreneurs and influencers to create community building avenues which assist small business owners with attracting more customers and increase awareness.

The Shop Small Business Saturday initiative through American Express aims to provoke the audience to shop local and obtain needed services within the community in which they live, thus strengthening the local economy. This fun-filled day at the Absolutely Anything Essential Gift Shop in Chicago’s Bronzeville community begins at 12 pm.

We cannot do this alone. The Absolutely Anything Essential Gift Shop has been selected for the 3rd year as one of Chicago’s American Express Neighborhood Champions. We are asking for your participation. We want supporters of local businesses and fellow neighbors in the Bronzeville, Douglas, The Gap Community, Kenwood, South Loop and Hyde Park communities to know that you don't have to drive longer than 15 minutes to find services for you and your family as well as enjoy great shopping as well as positive and creative events. For more info call 312.238.9447
