Support our Partners
The coronavirus COVID-19 pandemic has created havoc for many Michigan businesses; especially those involving contact with the public. Many of our partners have been affected by orders to close or change their business model for the time being. In an effort to give back, we've created a list of our partners along with their websites. We encourage you to help them in this time of need to be a patron as you are able or consider making a purchase of a gift card to be used later. Help our partners who have given so much to us over the years, in a time when they could use a helping hand!

Any suggestions of small businesses in Lansing that should be showcased, send to Kristin Rhine.
