We Believe in Garden City

Garden City is the community in which we have decided to invest our time, money, and hard work. We’ve put down roots and have made a commitment to the people who live here.

The work we do is measured in more than just dollars and cents; we are an important part of the fabric that makes up Garden City, Michigan.

The Garden City Business Alliance is proud to be part of the American Dream. We believe that if you work hard and persevere, you can be successful. Like anything else that is worthwhile, it is not easy, but we welcome the challenge. And like millions of Americans before us, we realize that if we work together we can accomplish so much more than if we all work separately.

This is the inspiration for the Garden City Business Alliance.

We believe that small businesses working together can help each one of us be better merchants, offer more to our customers, and be a good neighbor to our community.

If you’re a Garden City business owner, citizen, or community advocate, you’re welcome to join us. We meet once each month and we announce the meeting locations and times well in advance on this website and on our Facebook page.

Don’t forget to LIKE us on Facebook and FOLLOW US on Twitter to keep up with current events.

We’d also appreciate your input. If you know of events taking place in or around Garden City, please let us know. If you’ve heard about some good news we can share here, please tell us about it. And, of course, if you own a business in Garden City, whether home-based or with a storefront, you’re welcome to join the GCBA.
