Shop, Eat & Stay Local

Now more than ever, small businesses in Pure Michigan need your support. By using these resources to shop, eat and stay local, you can help Michigan workers, businesses and communities thrive this season while finding everything you need.
Our vibrant downtowns are filled with local shops specializing in décor, fashion, pet toys, hardware and more. For the craft beverage lover, Michigan’s beer, wine and spirits can be found throughout the state at brick-and-mortar shops and local grocery stores. If you’re a bibliophile, charming, independent bookstores overflow with page-turning stories and gifts. Don't forget to refuel at Michigan coffee shops and get a bag of beans to enjoy at home. 
Share a delicious meal with loved ones while supporting local restaurants by sharing a gift card or dropping off a carry-out order—or stop in one of Michigan’s delectable candy and fudge shops for a treat. You can also discover a relaxing stay-cation at local lodging options to get a break from the daily routine at home.
