It’s the Saturday after Thanksgiving and malls are full.
Parking lots are crowded, lines are long and there’s more flesh pressed between the isles than leftover turkey between wheat and mayo. You’ve got family and friends on a holiday gift list, but you don’t want any part of this scene. So what’s the alternative?
“Shop Small in GRANDmont Rosedale” welcomes one and all to shops along Grand River in the west-side community from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. Nov. 25.
Featuring Shop pop-up vendors, arts & crafts, live entertainment, author readings and book signings, and more, the event supports Small Business Saturday. In recent years, entrepreneurs and neighborhood business owners have campaigned to generate customer support during the bustling holiday spending season, and Grandmont Rosedale Development Corp. has joined the effort.
