In 2012 the City of College Park, Maryland began research to create a brand that would raise awareness of the City’s numerous assets and promote it as a great place to live and work. Upon completion of the research, a logo and tagline were selected to market the City to potential residents, businesses, and visitors.

Given a thriving university, an educated population, proximity to the nation’s capital, and a growing transit network, the City of College Park has been branded as “A Smart Place to Live.”

Get ready to celebrate Small Business Saturday®

College Park is proud to support Small Business Saturday® this Nov 25. Founded by American Express in 2010, this day celebrates and supports the small businesses that make communities unique.

 

From family-run corner stores to food trucks to online boutiques, small businesses are an important part of our lives. When they succeed, we all do. This year, we want to help them connect with more customers like you in their community.

 

Here are some ways to participate before, during, and after the big day:

 

  • Leading up to Small Business Saturday, tell the people you love about the small businesses you love. Encourage friends, family, and neighbors to do the same using #ShopSmall on social media.
  • On Nov 25, get out and shop the small businesses in your community! Be sure to share your favorite places using #ShopSmall and #SmallBizSat.
  • See the impact small businesses have on your community and learn more about the
    Shop Small® Movement at ShopSmall.com.
