Shopping small is good for you and just as good for your local business!

Shop Small is our way of saying thank you to small businesses that make a big difference across the country.

Small Business Saturday is a grassroots campaign that highlights small business success and encourages customers to support small businesses such as Hay Hampers. This year, Small Business Saturday will take place on Saturday 1st December.

Small Business Saturday was originally founded by American Express and it remains the principal supporter of the campaign in the UK, as part of its on-going commitment to encourage consumers to shop small.

From 1 to 16 December 2018, every time you buy a Christmas hamper from us with your American Express Card you will receive a £5 statement credit.                                                       

To take part, simply register your card. It only takes a few moments and then you’re ready to Shop Small:

Spend £10 or more in a single transaction on your Card and get £5 back

American Express has a long history of working with small businesses and for the sixth year running they are encouraging people through the Shop Small campaign to show their support by spending in local, independent small businesses on their high street like Hay Hampers.

Not only do small businesses play a huge role in our communities all over the country, contributing billions of pounds to the economy, but they very often go above and beyond to serve their customers.

Hay Hampers has taken part in Small Business Saturday for a number of years to further connect with the community, and this year decided to apply and was chosen for the SmallBiz100. The business has also been involved in the AMEX Shop Small campaign.
