How can you make your dollars count this holiday season? Shop local. Detroit’s small business owners have been enduring COVID-19 while having to pivot their business models and reinvent what it means to be an entrepreneur during a pandemic. Real talk: your favorite local restaurant or retailer won’t survive without our help.
To help Detroit’s small businesses get the recognition and love they deserve, the Detour Detroit team launched our Keep Detroit Local program this year, which donated dozens of free newsletter ads to entrepreneurs in need. We’re back this holiday season with our first Keep Detroit Local Virtual Holiday Market. Our promotional partners are some of the most hard-working local business owners, entrepreneurs, and talented individuals you can find in this city — and they are hustling especially hard this holiday season. Check out their fantastic featured items and discounts and surprise someone on your list this holiday season with a local gift that can’t be found in a big-box store. And make sure to check out Detour Detroit’s guides to supporting Black-owned businesses, finding sustainable holiday gifts, the best gifts to eat and drink and some our favorite local online shops!
