Independence Avenue Style!


  “Small Business Saturday” is dedicated to supporting small businesses like yours in communities across the country.   Founded by American Express in 2010, it has become an annual holiday shopping tradition.   Since it began, U.S. customers have reported spending and estimated total of $85 billion at independent retailers and restaurants – that’s $85 billion over 8 days alone!   This year, you can help attract even more customers to your business with “Shop Small” resources, compliments of American Express.

  This year, the Northeast Kansas City Chamber of Commerce and the Independence Avenue Community Improvement District has partnered with American Express to provide additional resources specifically to Independence Avenue merchants to help drive shoppers to their doors.   We invite you to make “Small Business Saturday” your own by shopping our hidden gems and small businesses along the Historic Northeast’s busiest commercial corridor, Independence Avenue.

  This Saturday on November 24th, get a head start on your holiday list and avoid long lines, and long prices, and shop where you see the “Shop Small” signs and icons in participating small businesses along Independence Avenue.   Whether it be bargain shopping to grocery shopping, international style to international decor, or even a quality cup of coffee or the best bakery in town, Independence Avenue has everything you need and more to make the most of your 2018 “Small Business Saturday”.
