GROSSE POINTE CITY — As retailers begin to reopen their doors to customers in Michigan, Village businesses in Grosse Pointe City hope to get a boost from a revamped website for the popular business and shopping district.

In mid-May, Village officials announced the debut of the new website, which was created by Revize, a Michigan-based website design firm that recently developed new websites for Grosse Pointe City and Grosse Pointe Park.

A spokesperson for the Village said the site is now more interactive. Website visitors can order from businesses and restaurants through the Village business directory, sign up for monthly newsletters, volunteer for special events, and find out about properties available for sale or rent. The site, which is compliant with the Americans with Disabilities Act, includes listings for events as well.

“I am excited about the launch of the revamped website for the Village,” Grosse Pointe City Manager and Grosse Pointe Village Downtown Development Authority Director Pete Dame said by email. “Especially as businesses start to reopen, it is important to have an attractive, updated way of marketing and informing people about all the great shops, restaurants and services in downtown Grosse Pointe.”

On May 21, Gov. Gretchen Whitmer signed an executive order allowing retail businesses and auto dealerships statewide to open to customers by appointment beginning May 26.

“The data shows that Michigan is ready to phase in these segments of our economy, but we must stay vigilant and ensure we’re doing everything we can to protect ourselves and our families from the spread of COVID-19,” Whitmer said in a prepared statement. 

Known for its tagline, “The Heart of the Pointes,” the Village has long been a central place for residents to meet, dine and shop. It includes a mix of local businesses and national chains.
