GRAND RAPIDS, Michigan – The world is moving again. It was a crazy time for the co-owner of Pyramid Scheme, Tami VandenBerg.
“We can finally fill our business again,” said VandenBerg.
The live music venue is hosting its first show since Friday the 13th in 2020. Scheduled for July 10th, the same band that played their soft opening a decade ago will play their post-pandemic reopening.
“Don’t sleep while buying your tickets. They drive faster than I’ve ever seen our tickets sell, ”said Vandenberg.
Wedding dresses are also flying off the shelves, faster than Renee Austin Bridal’s senior buyer can buy them.
“Like hot cakes,” said Eliza Maxwell, Renee Austin’s senior buyer.
Eliza Maxwell says it’s because brides can finally look forward to planning a wedding with greater confidence again. They started a sample sale for those who need a dress sooner rather than later.
“All of these brides are now actually able to plan their weddings. So they need a dress today, ”said Maxwell.
For both companies it is a light at the end of the tunnel after a dark year.
“The tiny announcement came. I think it was first July 1st and then they postponed it until today which is fabulous. All of our phones and inboxes just exploded with promoters, musicians and fans, ”said VandenBerg.
