Last year over 16.5 million shoppers took part, spending £504m and giving a significant boost to small, independent businesses.

American Express is again helping small businesses attract customers in the lead-up to Christmas, by supporting them with a national advertising campaign celebrating the heroes of the high streets, creating an interactive Shop Small map and more.

Small business owners can use the American Express Ad Creator tool free of charge to create personalised digital advertising to increase online visibility. The company will then promote the finished adverts online to customers in the local area.
