Explore Downtown Cedar Springs

If you’d like to keep up with what’s happening with the businesses in downtown Cedar Springs, you can now check out a new page on Facebook called “Explore Downtown Cedar Springs.”

According to admin Perry Hopkins, owner of Kin of Hope Natural Health and Perry’s Place LLC for herbs, teas, and more…, the page is a new rendition of the previous page “Vintage Cedar Springs” (which was to promote our stores downtown that sold vintage goods). 

“Our downtown is growing, and we have more stores and other new businesses, so we updated the page to promote all the Downtown Cedar Springs businesses,” explained Hopkins. “This page is similar to the Cedar Springs Community Summer Celebrations page I created a couple years ago for all the Cedar Springs businesses, committees, groups, etc. to promote their events in one place, with the exception this page is primarily for the Downtown businesses/organizations. We welcome all businesses, groups, and/or organizations in the downtown area to utilize the page and make a single location for people to see classes, events, specials, and updates.  Anyone hosting a Facebook event in the downtown can make the page a co-host.”

Hopkins said that some of your favorite local stores are collaborating on various Shop Hop events this year that will include refreshments, contests and prizes.

Also, a note from the Kent Theatre: 

The Historic Kent Theatre is currently closed for public exhibitions. With the current Kent County Health Department restrictions, it is not in the Kent Theatre’s best interest to reopen at this time. The Kent Theatre Board of Directors will evaluate reopening at our next meeting at the end of March. 

The Kent Theatre is currently available for private events and movies. Please contact Len Allington at events@kenttheatre.com for details.
