The Right Place has announced that Notions Marketing will expand in Grand Rapids, investing $33 million and creating 250 new jobs.

Notions Marketing is the world’s largest distributor of creative arts products, representing national/international retailers and shipping to locations in 87 countries. The family-owned business has been located in Grand Rapids since 1938.

The company plans to add about 80,000 square feet and renovate approximately 40,000 square feet of its current site located at 600 Cottage Grove in Grand Rapids.

“This expansion marks a significant milestone and new chapter in our company’s growth history,” said Adrienne Stevens, President, Notions Marketing. “We are proud to call Grand Rapids home and be able to continue investing and creating jobs here in the city.”

The Michigan Strategic Fund Board has approved a performance-based grant for the company through the Michigan Business Development Program.

The City of Grand Rapids plans to provide local municipal support for the expansion throughout the project and is considering a personal property tax exemption.

“The City has supported a long history of Notions Marketing’s growth and we are happy to be a partner in their continued success,” said Kara Wood, Economic Development Director, City of Grand Rapids.
