As an organization that serves local business owners and customers, Restaurant Association Metropolitan Washington is proud to join with American Express to support the 10th annual Small Business Saturday® this November 30, 2019!

Small Business Saturday was founded by American Express in 2010 to help strengthen local economies. Today, it’s a holiday shopping tradition and part of a nationwide Shop Small® Movement dedicated to supporting all kinds of small businesses. From the corner store to your favorite diner to a trendy online boutique, it’s unique small businesses like yours that help local communities stay vibrant.
