As summer weather and reduced COVID-19 restrictions begin pulling everyone back outside, businesses, especially small businesses, are seeing a long awaited comeback. One such business is McLean and Eakin Booksellers in Petoskey.
McLean and Eakin is the type of bookstore you might picture in your head when thinking of a small town bookstore. The warm lighting, creaky wooden floors, and the smell of books in the air makes for the perfect book shopping atmosphere.
