The Grandmont Rosedale community on Detroit’s northwest side is made up of five neighborhoods: Grandmont #1, Grandmont, Minock Park, Rosedale Park, and North Rosedale Park. When we talk about this area we tend to think of the beautiful homes in the neighborhoods, of which there are plenty. Spending an afternoon there, it's easy to see what organizations like the Grandmont Rosedale Development Corporation (GRDC), are pushing hard to make known: the area is becoming a destination for good food and shopping as well.
The primary retail corridor in the Grandmont Rosedale area is situated on Grand River Ave. between the Southfield freeway and Evergreen Rd. It’s there where you’ll find businesses like Pages Book Shop, Elias Donuts, and soon a second location for Detroit Vegan Soul. While the neighborhood already has a lot going for it, one of the more encouraging things to hear was that it was recently awarded $150,000 by Hatch Detroit to add landscaping, bike racks, and improve signage for some of the businesses in the corridor.
On Saturday November 26th, the GRDC will be encouraging all to 'Shop small in GRANDmont Rosedale'. In addition to the existing businesses in the area, there will be pop-up shops and food trucks throughout. Families can also design and create their own Christmas wreaths, and have their purchases gift wrapped at the GRDC offices.
DXF will be conducting a free walking tour of the neighborhood during the event from 11am-1pm. This is your chance to experience Grandmont Rosedale like never before with one of our experienced Ambassadors. Join us for this free holiday event and help support local businesses on Small Business Saturday!
