Patch and American Express united over the weekend to sponsor almost 200 parking spots in Riviera Village in Redondo Beach for Small Business Saturday, a marketing event for the credit company that encourages shoppers to spend their money locally.

Patch editors, including Redondo Beach Local Editor Nicole Mooradian, handed out shopping bags and sundry swag to passersby next to the kiosk on South Catalina Avenue.

Local business owners told Patch that after a dreary Friday, many people came out to Riviera Village on Saturday.
