Small Business Saturday


By: Christina


Large companies seem to be taking over the world, but everyone still loves a community mom and pop shop in their neighborhood. Summit has several small businesses that are cute, quaint, and you should definitely check them out! Below are a list of some of our favorite small businesses in Summit.

Boxwood Coffee

Boxwood has some of the best coffee in the area while still keeping that hometown coffee shop feel. They roast their own beans, know an endless amount of great information about coffee, and are enthusiastic about helping you find exactly what you're looking for. Pair that with great snacks, non-coffee drinks, and a comfortable, upbeat atmosphere, and you can look no further for your favorite coffee spot. (While you're there try their Nitro Cold Brew - available on tap right in the store)!


Formerly the Summit Running Company, Jackrabbit offers all of the products of a larger sporting goods store, but with a small-town downtown feel. Their staff is knowledgeable about all kinds of running shoes and clothing, and they can help you find whatever you need to kick your training up a notch...or two or three!

The WoodHouse Day Spa

Escape the daily grind in Summit's luxurious Woodhouse Day Spa. They offer total relaxation right in downtown Summit, including massages, facials, manicures, pedicures, and waxing. Those spa sessions will definitely help you renew, and refresh after a hectic week! - (or just because).

Color Me Mine

Perfect for friends, couples, groups, and birthday parties! Create something beautiful for yourself or to give as a gift. They have great painting events with fun themes, and workshops all summer long. Check them out!

Project Physique

Katje is simply the best! This little powerhouse of a fitness studio is tucked away down a picture-worthy alley off of Springfield Avenue. They offer awesome custom classes, including barre, pilates, yoga, spin, and kickboxing.

Greene Street

One of the best consignment shops I've ever had to pleasure to visit. If you're looking for great deals on unique pieces, this is the place for you!
