It’s getting to be that time of the year. A season of giving that everyone loves.

People in West Michigan love to shop local. ArtPrize has listened to the requests from our friends, and so for the first time ever, we will re-open The HUB Store at 41 Sheldon Blvd. for holiday shopping starting at Noon on Tuesday, Nov. 15, 2011.

And to make things even more magical, most of the store’s iconic ArtPrize merchandise has been marked down 40 percent.

According to the 3/50 Project, a small-business advocacy group, for every $100 spent in locally owned, independent stores, $68 returns to the community. Imagine the potential impact, since every purchase in the ArtPrize store will help support art in our community and help keep the ArtPrize event free for everyone.

The ArtPrize Store will open Tuesday, Nov. 15 through Thursday, Dec. 22, 2011. The store will be generously staffed by volunteers and therefore closed Thanksgiving Day and Friday, Nov. 25.

November: Tuesday – Friday; Noon – 6:00 p.m.
December: Tuesday – Saturday; Noon – 6:00 p.m.
