Notions….many would be unfamiliar with the term. Years ago most department stores would have a notions department….all the things necessary for sewing. Notions Marketing in Grand Rapids, MI started in the 1930’s selling school supplies and toys….adding sewing notions and yarns in the 60’s….crafts in the 70’s…..and paper crafts in the 90’s.
Two things stand out about a business most of us would seldom come across:
1) The marketing strategy of being a Global Creative Arts Distributor.
2) Notions has it facilities in the old furniture manufacturing plants that were once a key industry in Grand Rapids.
