About Old Pioneer Store & Emporium

The Old Pioneer Store and Emporium is nestled in the middle of historic Downtown Big Rapids-home of Ferris State University and in the former building that housed the Pioneer Newspaper. Locally owned by Brian and Carlleen Rose this award winning store is proud of the community it serves. To get into The Old Pioneer Store and Emporium you will need to first enter the Kilwin’s Ice Cream, Fudge and Chocolate Shop and walk through into The Old Pioneer Store and Emporium. The building is like an indoor mall as you discover yet another building to enter with even more surprises to see!

  • You might have seen all the recent pinwheels downtown. Did you know it’s child abuse prevention month? They are a reminder that you too can help prevent child abuse. Information is provided on the sign. #childabuseawareness #childabusepreventionmonth #childabuseprevention #pinwheelsforprevention #downtownbigrapids #bigrapids
  • We hope you’ll been able to get out onto the #whitepinestrail this weekend. We are blessed to have so much nature around, and available to us. #bigrapids #cycling #outdoorrecreation #sunshine #activeBigRapids
  • The Muskegon River is really moving fast this morning, we can sometimes see why our lumbering forefathers referred to us as “Big Rapids.” The geese are out early this morning enjoying the fresh cool water. Every year these birds come back to our piece of river bank to call their home, and raise their Spring goslings. #muskegonriver #bigrapids #bigrapidsmichigan #geese #goslings #springtime
  • We are looking forward to Summer when these streets get filled with fun events and happy smiling people, and not SNOW! LOL 😂 Thank you to the Big Rapids City for being out there and plowing our streets and sidewalks, bright and early this morning. #springinmichigan #downtownbigrapids #michiganapril
  • We underestimate winter’s tenacity. Keep thinking Spring, and those Long Summer days and evenings that you can go to the hemlock park and make warm memories. #makingmemories #downtownbigrapids #snowinapril #spring #riverwalk #hemlockpark
  • Look at these beautiful Spring promises. All along the southern 1/2 of #riverwalk you will find these early May flowers. #springinbigrapids #spring #riverwalkbigrapids #hemlockpark#downtownbigrapids #springishappening
