They’ve always been there. Some have been part of their neighborhood for decades; others are newer additions. They’re the shops and restaurants that make West Michigan…West Michigan. And now, more than ever, they need our support. This holiday season, step up big by shopping small.
Locally owned, small businesses all over West Michigan are adapting and making it easy and safe to buy their products. Many offer online shopping. Take a look at our local business map below and click on the pins for ideas on which businesses to support in your area. If you know of another business we should consider adding, fill out the form below.
FOX 17 is committed to helping our local small businesses survive during this tough time. Throughout December, as part of our We’re Open For the Holidays campaign we’ll feature a West Michigan business during our newscasts every single weekday. So please join us as we hear their stories, celebrate their persistence and most importantly support them during a difficult time.
As you find ways to support businesses in your community, share your photos and stories with us by adding the hashtag #OpenWestMichigan.
