GREENVILLE, NC—Every Small Purchase Makes A Big Difference. Stop by the locally-owned, independent businesses in Uptown Greenville on Saturday, November 27th for the annual “Small Business Saturday” event.

This exclusive event, founded by American Express, celebrates the small retailers and other local businesses within the community. Small Business Saturday is held annually, on the Saturday after Thanksgiving.

Hop on the Emerald Express from 12pm-8pm to travel throughout the Uptown District. To entice riders, Uptown Greenville will host a gift card blitz for Emerald Express riders. Take a ride on the Emerald Express for a gift card to spend at a local merchant!

According to American Express, “In 2020 alone, American Express spent approximately $200 million on initiatives to support small businesses around the globe. And when you Shop Small®, the dollars you spend at a local business in your community can add up, too.”

Come out and support your local businesses on Saturday, as a reminder of the impact you make in helping the small businesses in the Greenville community thrive!
