Wall Shelves


Paula Burkhart, Owner

Even though I spent an entire career teaching middle schoolers the joys of science, I held a love and appreciation for retail. I dreamt of owning and maintaining my own store. The building, the design, the items for sale, the branding, etc. The entire time I was teaching, I was also learning from the relationship that my youngest daughter shared with her father...business management and the entrepreneurial spirit. 

After years of shopping in fun and unique stores, I decided to open a retail store that combines a love of retail, agriculture, shopping local, and a great experience. Grand River Marketplace will soon be a reality. I hope that every customer that comes in the doors feels appreciated, that they've spent their money wisely, and can't wait to bring their family and friends to visit.
