Business Spotlight


 Stonesthrow is the brainchild of fourth-generation Huizen family members Todd Huizen, Karen Kloostra, and Kathy Wissink. Recognizing a local need for more modern home furnishing choices, the three decided to provide consumers with the ability to find those furnishings right in Grand Rapids. A continuing tradition since 1926!.

Stonesthrow will host the holiday photo booth and prize giveaway!
