Shop Local – Shop #LoveLivCo

November 16, 2020 | Story by: Shelby Rochowiak

As leaves fall and temperatures drop, we inch closer and closer to the holiday season. As you begin holiday shopping, take time to check out Livingston County’s local businesses. Local finds often make the most unique and memorable gifts. Now more than ever, it is important to spread pride about where we come from.

Give these businesses your support this holiday season, and spread the word by tagging #LoveLivCo when you post about your holiday finds.  You may have your photo featured on our social media!

The World-Renowned Zukey Lake Tavern T-shirt

You can’t truly call yourself a Livingston County local, until you are the proud owner of a Zukey Lake Tavern T-shirt. Available in any color imaginable, these shirts are a symbol of LoveLivCo pride.

It is an amazing feeling when you are traveling in a different state or country and spot someone sporting a colorful Zukey Lake Tavern shirt. Follow their Facebook page to see photos of people wearing the shirt in other countries while traveling.

Pair a shirt with a gift card, and you have the perfect gift for a loved one!

Travel mugs, Coffee Beans, Gift Cards and more at Black Iron Coffee Roasters

Black Iron Coffee Roasters, located in downtown Howell, is the perfect stop to warm-up and caffeinate while holiday shopping. Help warm up a loved one’s chilly morning with a gift card to grab their favorite holiday drink at Black Iron.

Give thanks for great health this holiday season at The Fuel & The Space!

Celebrating an upcoming event? Wine batches are perfect for weddings, birthday parties, corporate events, retirement parties, anniversaries, and any other event worthy of celebration!
