Plot / Description
This commercial for American Express is about shopping local businesses, not just on Small Business Saturday, but every day. Support your local community by shopping at local businesses.
"Shop Small and the American Express Membership Effect :60"
They have names like, Idle Time Books and Panther Coffee. With free enterprise puns like Hugh & Crye and Smash Records. And one Saturday a year, small businesses remind the nation of the benefits of shopping small. Like the way David Kaplan at Shell Lumber shows you how to use a chop saw, then invites you back when the warehouse becomes the community theater. Or the way Camille Rustler of Ever After travels the journey from despair to bliss with every bride-to-be.
On Small Business Saturday, One Hundred Million of us joined a movement and Main Street found its might again. And Main Street found its fight again. And we, the locals, found delight again. That's the power of all of us. That's the membership effect of American Express.
