2023 has been a challenging year for many businesses in the Kalamazoo area. In the last few months, we’ve learned of so many amazing businesses that have been a staple in our community for many years that have decided that they will be permanently closing their doors.

Sadly, another store outside of Kalamazoo, which made a large impact in their community has decided they will also be closing going into 2024. The B2 outlet store in Coldwater was a regular stop for many people, but unfortunately recently announced that they will be closing as well in an announcement made on their Facebook:

With heavy hearts, we say goodbye today. So many of you have become more like family than customers. We are forever thankful for the community involvement we've had. It's been a blessing to be in your lives!! God works in ways we may never understand. However, this door is closing. A new one will open, and we will greet it with smiles and determination!! See you out there

7 Local Businesses In Kalamazoo Closing Before 2024

Godfather‘s Pizza, Boonzaaijer Bakery, Oakland Bistro, Michelle‘s, Coffee Rescue, and a few more places have decided to hang it up, at least at their current location before Christmas which is a little bit alarming.

Even though Kalamazoo did get a lot of new business in 2023, you hate to see staple businesses that have been open for more than 20 years suddenly decide to close. The best we can do is continue to support local businesses in our communities.
