Shop Local - Macomb's Unique Boutiques

Macomb County’s unique boutiques are in every community, from Armada to Warren. We’re talking locally owned and operated businesses that offer a wide array of merchandise. Imagine walking into a store filled with handmade chocolates, smelling the aroma of buttery toffee, perhaps enjoying a wee sample before making your purchase…..welcome to Champagne Chocolates in downtown Mount Clemens!!!

Traveling to various communities within the county will yield a most satisfying shopping experience. The waterfront town of New Baltimore is bursting with new businesses just waiting to show you their specialties. Enjoy a tasting at the wine bar at Washington Street Wine House while shopping for the ultimate wine-themed gift item. Move on to northern Macomb County and peruse the shops in downtown Romeo, where you’ll find vintage and antique wares of all types. You get the idea….this is what “buying local” is all about!

Make it a priority to shop locally -- your decision to shop in our local communities has a significant impact. Did you know that recent studies* have shown that local retailers return a greater percentage of revenues to their communities in the form of local labor, goods procured locally for resale, and services from local providers than do chain retailers? In general, every $100 spent at locally owned businesses generates an additional $58 in local impact.

Take a look at our list of unique shops in Macomb County . Did we miss your favorite?  Post a link to our Facebook wall and we'll add it to the list.
