Buy Nearby : Apothecary Off Main

Good Morning Everyone! 

With Wendling & Boyd having many facets that unite under one banner, today I want to focus on buying local. The Michigan Retailer's Association are continuing their campaign "Buy Nearby" and they asked me to create a blog post about my favorite retailer that I go on a regular basis. They are also having a photo competition in which you can win a $500 Discovery gift card ( more information down below). With loving almost all of the shops here in Grand Rapids, I narrowed it down to Apothecary off Main. For some reason, this specific shop has been one of my top favorites and have always loved the company of this specific shop. Here's a little more about Apothecary Off Main:

Apothecary Off Main boutique is proud to have two locations serving the West Coast & the East Coast. The original boutique opened in May of 2013 and is located in the city of Vista in Southern California, just seven miles inland from the Pacific Ocean. Our second location opened August of 2014 and is located in the city of Grand Rapids, Michigan...the mitten state! 

Both locations specialize in selling personal & home care products, remedies, and gourmet spices & extracts. We carry an amazing men's line from Damn Handsome Grooming Co. We also carry a line of fabulous smelling soy candles by The Burlap Bag. All products sold at Apothecary Off Main boutiques are hand crafted and Made in America. That will always be important to us as we know it is to you.

With loving handmade products and men's grooming supplies, this shop has always been perfect for a quick pit stop if I ever ran out of anything. Now with their expansion, adding a men's shop, my world was colored with new products. Also being a graphic designer, I loved seeing all of the different branding and package design for all of the different grooming products. Jill and Tracey have always taken care of me when I stopped into the shop, even my parents love coming into the shop. That truly show's how warm and welcoming a shop can be. Every time I take my friends into the shop, they can't wait to come back and support the locally made products that are inside of the Apothecary.  

I want to send a Huge thank you to Buy Nearby and the Michigan Retailers Association for sponsoring this blog post. I love supporting locally made companies and this was the perfect opportunity to collaborate with a wonderful company.
