Initial Attraction, conveniently located in the Oakwood shopping Plaza, has been helping shoppers with gracious giving and stylish living for over 16 years. Where trend meets tradition, you'll find a diverse array of gifts, apparel, tabletop, and custom offerings for giving and home.

Bree and Meme, owners of Initial Attraction, believe that gift-giving is not about things, but about creating connections, memories, and experiences. When done well, gift-giving can be magical.

Initial Attraction is a family-owned business, founded by mother-daughter team Meme Bennett and Bree Bennett Hahn. Their goal is to find products and offer experiences to Kalamazoo that cannot be found elsewhere in town, but that you don't have to leave Kalamazoo to get, contributing something unique to the landscape of Kalamazoo while strengthening the tax base by keeping dollars local.

"Buying local is just as important as banking local", stated Meme Bennett. "It's important to us to walk our talk in regards to keeping dollars local and supporting establishments that make Kalamazoo unique and special. Having a locally owned bank is why we started banking with First National Bank of Michigan. The stellar customer service, the care that FNBM has for its clients, and the relationships that we've built are the icing on the cake as to why we've continued to bank with FNBM over the long term."
