Grand Rapids Holiday Shopping 2016

Shop Local ‘til You Drop: Holiday Shopping in West Michigan

As a certified B Corporation and brand marketing agency in Grand Rapids, we're high proponents of supporting local businesses—whether that be shopping local, working for a small business, donating to their cause, or volunteering our time. This holiday season, the TIS crew is teaming up with our friends at Local First and 616 Lofts to provide gifts for homeless families with children in Grand Rapids Public Schools, as well as organizing our own Secret Santa gift exchange within the office. We've made a vow to shop local first for these efforts.

We encourage you to source your holiday gifts locally this year. Not only will you be giving your loved ones or those in need something special, you'll also be giving back to your community. Unsure of where to shop locally in West Michigan? Here're some of the TIS team's favorite local shops to get ya started...
