My Town Lowell: 'Kickin' It On Main Street' a win-win for local business and schools

LOWELL, Mich.—Eight businesses lining Main Street are throwing their support behind Lowell Schools with a new campaign called “Kickin’ It On Main Street”. 

Each month, the businesses will donate to one school or school program.  The donation amount will be determined by members and supports of the school or club who shop at the participating merchants.  Each customer can earn 10 percent for their group by mentioning their involvement with the program when they step up to the cash register.

"We realize that schools have been hit hard the last few years in terms of funding," said Cliff Yankovich of Chimera Design. "We felt it was important for Main Street merchants to give back to the community that keeps us in business. We also welcome the opportunity to demonstrate to the kids that shopping at local businesses can be beneficial to the community as a whole - Amazon.com is not going to help the Band Boosters or the Robotics Team in Lowell."

Participating merchants include Nikki Jane's Boutique, Rookies Sportscards Plus, Springrove Variety, Aesthetics Gallery, Glass House Design, Pep Talk, Chimera Design and Station Salon.

The first group to benefit from Kickin’ It ON Main Street is the Lowell Band Boosters during the month of June.

"This is a classic win-win situation," Yankovich adds. "All of us can potentially meet some new customers and we in turn can support a great school system."
