Sandwiched between black Friday and cyber Monday is small business Saturday. It's an opportunity for local stores to attract customers and this year they have some help from the chamber of commerce. The Corpus Christi Chamber of Commerce got a 5-thousand dollars grant from the US Chamber. The grant was in the form of American Express gift cards. They were distributed to businesses around town so that they could give them away to their costumers as rewards.
American Express is also offering an incentive. They are offering 25 dollars statement credit to card members who shop at small business. For more information you can head to shopsmall.com.
