Started in the United States in 2010, Shop Small is a movement to celebrate the contributions of local businesses to their communities and the economy. Therefore, they feel the need to encourage shoppers to support them.

Since then, it has been introduced in countries around the world including  Singapore, Australia, the UK, India, and Japan. 

“Shop Small is one of the ways we can support local businesses in the country,” said Ma. Nannette  R. Regala, BDO Senior Vice President and Consumer Banking-Marketing Head.
