Shopping Small adds up to Big Things.
Small businesses are at the core of every thriving neighborhood. That’s why, in the midst of the recession in 2010, American Express created Small Business Saturday® on the Saturday after Thanksgiving to encourage people to Shop Small and bring more holiday shopping to small businesses.
America Runs on Small Businesses and small businesses are the retail backbone of our communities and our economy. Shop Small is a nationwide movement dedicated to supporting thousands of small businesses and encouraging shoppers to think small.
We’d like to extend an invitation to reserve your room at the Old Parkdale Inn, visit Parkdale and Shop Small because shopping at a family-owned business such as The Old Parkdale Inn or purchasing specialty items from your favorite local store helps to promote more vibrant communities. Purchase a gift certificate for a stay at Old Parkdale Inn Bed and Breakfast, either for yourself when you’re ready to travel again, or as a thoughtful gift. We thank you in advance.
Here’s what’s not to miss in our community of Mt Hood Parkdale, extending a show of small business camaraderie and economic optimism.
