Rock Perks Spotlight: Apothecary Off Main
By Caylie Peet, CTA
Apothecary Off Main on Monroe Center in downtown Grand Rapids is the ideal spot for the best hand-crafted products for your mind, body and home. Products range from hand soaps and kitchen products to candles and natural cleaners, all at affordable prices.
Jill Devan, co-owner and operating officer, brought her SoCal roots and lifestyle with her when she moved from California to the Midwest. The result is Apothecary Off Main, which got its start in downtown Grand Rapids as part of MoDiv, a former small business incubator located in the heart of the city. As a result of plenty of early success, Apothecary Off Main moved into a larger storefront.
We sat down with Jill to chat about her business and her connection to the city:
What makes Apothecary Off Main different from the competition?
“We offer the newest breakout vendors specializing in small-batch, hand-crafted products. We’re always on the lookout for the best natural products that you can’t live without. We’ll never be ‘trendy,’ but we will always be the first to take a chance on up and coming local vendors.”
What’s your favorite thing about operating a business in downtown GR?
“Being a part of the community. As a resident of downtown, I have a personal connection with my customers’ wants and needs. I also love meeting new folks every day. I feel like a personal ambassador bragging about our great city!”
What’s the most satisfying part about serving your customers and the community?
“Providing hand-crafted and creatively curated items for the body and mind so that our customers can live a healthy lifestyle.”
What’s on the horizon for Apothecary Off Main through the remainder of this year and beyond?
“We recently started making our own natural, hand-crafted products. We look forward to adding new items every few months to meet the needs of our customers.”
