Chamber of Commerce to hold pre-holiday open house


The Cedar Springs Area Chamber of Commerce is promoting a community-wide pre-holiday open house on Saturday, November 14.

According to Chamber President Perry Hopkins, they would like people to shop our community, and find out what Cedar Springs has to offer.

“The second weekend in November is the same weekend of opening day of (gun) deer season. On this weekend the majority of the people are hunting, shopping, or dining out. For some, this is when they start their Thanksgiving and Christmas shopping. There really is no need for people in the Cedar Springs Area to drive down to the bigger city to shop or dine out,” explained Hopkins.

He noted that there are a wide variety of stores to choose from, including an eclectic herbal tea shop, lumber/hardware store, two large farm stores, two antique stores, a video game store, two cell phone stores, two auto parts stores, a large grocery store, two ice cream shops, four dollar stores, a pool/water supply store, flooring store, ceramics and gift store, a custom shirt-making business, several pizza places, a home brew store, over a dozen fast food restaurants, at least five sit-down restaurants, a dozen places to get hair and nails done, the historic Kent Theatre, a new brewery and restaurant, and much more!

Watch next week’s Post with an advertisement for area specials on November 14.

Shop local, save money, and invest in your local community!

Cedar Springs Brewing Company


Cedar Springs Brewing Company held an open house on Red Flannel Day, to give residents a sneak peek inside. They served their homemade sodas and brats. They are still waiting, however, to finally get the go ahead to finally open.

“It was wonderful to see so many people turn out for our sneak peek open house,” said owner David Ringler. “We hope you enjoyed everything you saw, and please know there is more to come. We are still several weeks from opening as we await our permanent occupancy permit, Michigan Department of Agriculture approval and our final MLCC inspection.”

If you want to be informed, you can sign up for their emails on their website at www.csbrew.com. They are also taking orders for their Stammtisch Club at www.csbrew.com/stammtisch. Ringler said that members would be the first people invited in when the time comes.
