About #Shopchelseamich

A group of independent business owners who possess entrepreneurial spirits have joined forces and created #shopchelseamich. This collaborative team includes a network of 35+ Chelsea merchants and restaurants who have participated in and promoted Wine, Women & Shopping, Chocolate Extravaganza, and Sidewalk Sales events over the years. 

   

These business owners focus on keeping the community vibrant by providing reasons for people to shop in Chelsea with distinctive products and services. According to the American Independent Business Alliance, the multiplier effect is the boost to your local economy that results from locally-owned independent businesses, owners, and employees spending business revenue in the region.

 

  • A proven 48% return to the community occurs when you spend locally, versus a 13.6% return when shopping chain retail. 

  • Shop at local farmers market, support small wine and liquor stores, and frequent independent restaurants.  Because an impressive 65.5% returns to our community when you eat at a local restaurant versus a chain.

Chelsea is a picturesque city located in a thriving community with an abundance of shopping, dining, entertainment, and outdoor recreation. Stroll the streets and shop the shops, take in a play, explore the SculptureWalk exhibit, and grab a bite to eat. 15 miles west of Ann Arbor, Michigan, and 24 miles east of Jackson, an easy exit off I-94 and M-52 North.
