The COVID-19 outbreak is affecting everyone in many different ways. One large group of people being affected are small businesses. In Northern Michigan there are many, and with no tourists, locals staying inside their businesses are hurting.
Many restaurants, breweries, and cafes are still open! Offering curbside pickup and deals during this time. Many local shops have an online shop you can browse through. If you’re able to give anything or support these establishments during this time, anything helps. Below I will have links to many places I know in the Grand Traverse, Leelanau and Benzie counties. Please share more in the comments or on Instagram!
I will continue to update this post as best as I can.
