The COVID-19 pandemic has hit GR hard. Since the lockdown began in April 2020, more than 54 West Michigan businesses have closed their doors for good, 15 of which were right downtown. Although we mourn the loss of some of our favorite businesses, Grand Rapids has also grown. Please welcome these new businesses: Morning Belle, Art Caribbean Fusion Cuisine, Alt City Beverage, Tupelo Honey, GRNoir, and The Marketplace Powered by Pack Elephant.
