Welcome to Gladwin Online sponsored by the Gladwin Business & Professional Association. This website will be your central resource for businesses, attractions and events in the City of Gladwin.

Pick 3! Spend 50! Save your local economy!

What 3 independently owned businesses would you miss if they disappeared? Stop in. Say hello. Pick up something that brings a smile. Your purchases are what keeps those businesses around.

If half the employed population spent $50 each month in locally owned independent businesses, it would generate more than $42.6 billion in revenue nationally. Imagine the positive impact if 3/4 the employed population did that.

For every $100 spent in locally owned independent businesses, $68 returns to the community through taxes, payroll and other expenditures. If you spend that in a national chain, only $43 stays here; spend it online and nothing comes home.

It takes 1 person to start the trend - YOU!!!

Celebrating Anniversaries

85 YEARS! Myers for Tires marked their 85th Anniversary and to celebrate they had the WIX Rally Car and Mobil 1 Race Car on display. The Mobil 1 racing simulator was also on site to test driving skills! And BIGFOOT made an appearance! Grilled hotdogs & pop were served to all who stopped by to celebrate.


The Frank E. Ward Company celebrated 80 years of being members of the Gladwin community, offering a "Unique Shopping Experience Since 1935." A Re-Grand Opening Ribbon Cutting Ceremony was held on Friday, Aug.7 with three generations of family present and many fellow Gladwin business owners. A prayer by Rev. Karen Blatt for 80 more years of prosperity in Gladwin set the stage for the ceremonial ribbon cutting by Priscilla Szerdi.
