GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. — Entrepreneurs join forces to bring a unique, shared-space store to Woodland mall this holiday season.

The object is to give black-owned businesses not otherwise able to open a store a way to bring their products to a larger audience. Shalinda Douglas and Tynetta Wilson are hosting 28 businesses including their own clothing line, f.AT. The unique venture will offer everything from gifts and games to clothing and accessories.

Their grand opening is November 15th at 6 p.m. and the store is open until January 1st, 2021.
