Small Shops series makes a big difference in Detroit

Bank of America understands small businesses are vital to and play an important role in Detroit’s economy. In 2016 alone, the bank extended more than $440 million in new credit to small business owners in and around the Motor City.

To further shine a light on neighborhood businesses that are the economic backbone of the city, Bank of America is proud to sponsor TheHUB Detroit’s Small Shops stories. The series of vignettes look at local neighborhood businesses and chronicle the revitalization of Detroit’s historic and diverse neighborhoods.

We know that each business has its own unique story and we’re excited to support TheHUB Detroit to share those stories with a larger audience.

“Small businesses are the lifeblood of our neighborhoods,” says Jackie Berg, founder and publisher of TheHUB. “Step inside and you’ll discover a passionate group of truly unique individuals who not only contribute to our local economy but keep Detroit from becoming a city of look-alike, cookie-cutter operations.”

Small Shops elevates the importance of smaller business owners unlikely to garner media attention from larger outlets and is used as a mechanism to drive customer traffic critical to their long-term growth and success, says Berg.

“As a company, we get to know small business owners as we work with them to meet their needs and provide them with expertise and the tools to grow,” says Drew Piazza, small business manager, Bank of America. “We know that each business has its own unique story and we’re excited to support TheHUB Detroit to share those stories with a larger audience.”

The goal of the Small Shops stories is to put more small businesses on the map.
