Shop Small Tampa
The City of Tampa featured small businesses on its Shop Small Tampa directory to encourage support for local businesses on Small Business Saturday, which took place on November 30, 2019. Participating businesses appeared on the Shop Small Tampa online directory and the City's social media promotions.
Shop Small Tampa is one of the ways the City is working to uplift and strengthen relationships with local businesses through its Bridges to Business initiative.
Small Business Saturday takes place the Saturday after Thanksgiving. American Express created this day of shopping to promote and support small businesses throughout the United States. Small Business Saturday not only seeks participation from small businesses to help promote them, it also encourages residents to "shop local" and "shop small." Additional information on Shop Small Tampa for the November 2020 Small Business Saturday will be available online in the fall.
