Shop Local

When local businesses are successful, their communities benefit by increased employment opportunities, accessible goods and services, and a strong tax base. MDOT is mindful that we must do all we can to soften the blow to businesses during the Gratiot Ave M-3 reconstruction project.

While road construction is inconvenient, it won’t last forever. Therefore, we encourage you to Shop Local to help the businesses you enjoy every day to remain strong and viable resources for tomorrow.

"The Eastpointe-Roseville Chamber of Commerce is asking you to SUPPORT YOUR LOCAL BUSINESSES. They have been in your community supporting the city, the schools and the non-profit organizations at events and fundraisers that benefited you the resident. It has never been more important to support them now and keep your community alive and prospering.

Remember to stop in your local businesses in Roseville during road construction on Gratiot from 11 Mile to 14 Mile over the next two years. Just like home improvements, the inconvenience is short and the benefit is long term. Access to these businesses will be marked clearly with a safe entrance for you to enjoy dinner, shop or obtain services. The business owners and their employees will need your backing to stay open in their current location; let's give it to them!"

“Road construction can create challenges for our local businesses with customer access. To help address this challenge, we encourage business owners to:

  • Update your customer base
  • Use signage to promote that you’re open for business
  • Direct access points for consumers to follow
  • Utilize your local government and Chamber of Commerce to advertise and share your messaging.

As always, we encourage shopping local and support strategies that drive customers to your businesses.”
