When It Comes to Local Impact, We Drink Deep.
Manitou Made celebrates our community’s reputation as a haven for makers, merchants, artists, and entrepreneurs. Shopping here directly supports the people, places, and experiences that define our vibrant community. Although we set out on ambitious foot traffic goals, we also achieved ecommerce gains that will continue to help our small businesses thrive.
And, whether you choose to spend money in person or online at an independent business, it equals more money in local economic activity. According to the Andersonville Study of Retail Economics, local business generates 70% more local economic activity per square foot than big-box retail.
