Support Small Local Shops and Reward Yourself Too

American Express are once again encouraging people to shop at small local shops in their initiative Small Business Saturday in the UK which is now in its seventh year.

Carol from The Corner Shop in Shiplake have asked us to promote this offer which this year runs between 7-22 December. Mark and Carol at The Corner Shop offer a lovely warm welcome and sell a wide range of fresh local produce including fresh bread from Lawlor’s of Henley, locally made quiche, fresh milk, eggs and dairy, as well as canned and boxed staples.  They also run the Post Office which is a great asset at this time of year and there’s free parking outside.

Please support our other local small shops in town this Christmas too.  They’ve got some great gifts for everyone. Ask if they take American Express and reward yourself too.

Just spend £10 or more on your card in a single transaction in-store at a participating small business, and American Express will give you back a £5 credit on your statement to say thanks for your support. Don’t forget, it can pay big to shop small – you can earn up to £50 back during the offer period.

To take part, register the offer on your Card – or Supplementary Card – and you’re ready to shop small once the offer is live. Go to
