KALAMAZOO, Mich. (NEWSCHANNEL 3) - If you've been walking around downtown Kalamazoo of late, you may have noticed a few new businesses popping up in the area.

Pop City Popcorn is one of four new downtown businesses.

The former owners of the Gull Road Cinema 5 say they wanted to do something special in Kalamazoo after their business closed back in September.

Now, they're hoping to attract new customers while they're out and about on their lunch breaks.

The three other businesses include the Opti-Med Specialty Pharmacy, an elderly care service called Centra Care, and the Lavender Garden Day Spa.

Be sure to get out and support those local businesses!
