About Great Lakes Trading Post

Great Lakes Trading Post

Our family-owned business provides a truly unique shopping experience for all our customers. Just as it was with the early trading posts in history, we provide products and gifts for everyone. With 10,000 sq. ft. of space we offer indoor and outdoor storage in addition to our other goods and services. Need packaging and shipping supplies? Look no further, we have fantastic prices on all supplies and will package and ship your gifts worldwide.

Buy, Sell or Trade

We have thousands of items on hand between our storefront, warehouse and back building. We try to keep the storefront new by changing items out on a weekly basis. Visiting our store is a unique experience where you can come in and find just about anything. If we don’t have it, check out our Trading Post Board where members of the community can list their items for sale or trade. We buy and trade many items daily and are always looking for new inventory.

"Pure" Michigan-Made Items

Wanting to bring back the tradition of the “Traditional” Trading Post, we feel that selling locally made items helps to stimulate the whole community. Many citizens travel “Up North” to the UP or “down south” to parts of the southern United States just to be able to get away from the daily hustle. Stop in and visit our store and purchase some of our “Pure” Michigan-made items.

Would you like to add your business or organization to

Whether you represent a business or a community organization such as a church, school, museum, city government, etc., we invite you to create an account and get a free listing in our online business directory. There is no charge to create an account and it only takes a few moments of your time.

If you'd like additional exposure for your business or organization, we offer all kinds of options to fit your needs and budget. Do you want to bring more people in to your establishment? Why not consider a coupon or a promotional event? If you just need to keep yourself in the public eye you might want to think about placing an eye-catching full-color ad. You can choose your medium: the website, the mobile app, the weekly newsletter, our popular wall calendar, or any combination of the four.

Did you know that independent studies by the Verafast Corporation repeatedly show that at least 70% of all homeowners who receive our calendar keep and use it all year long? That's a phenomenal retention rate and makes sure that your business or organization is truly being put On Display Every Day.

With your account you'll also have the opportunity to post events that will appear on our website, in our weekly newsletter, and on our mobile app. Please remember that Town Planner is a franchise and all events are subject to approval by the local publisher in your area. As a general rule, our publishers are happy to accept non-profit events, but some publishers may have individual policies concerning for-profit events or events that compete with paying Town Planner sponsors. If you're uncertain about your event, please feel free to contact your local publisher to inquire about his or her policies prior to posting.

Remember too that we are a family friendly organization and reserve the right to reject any events that we deem inappropriate for our calendar or online media tools.

We want to bring the Town Planner to even more towns across America. If you or someone you know want to earn a good living while promoting local businesses and building hometown pride, please consider becoming a Town Planner publisher today!
