Health + Well-Being Businesses to Support During National Small Business Week
Did you know that Iowa has 270,000 small businesses, according to the SBA Iowa District Office? In Greater Des Moines (DSM) and across the rest of the state, many of these small businesses have had to pivot and look for new ways to reach their customers over the past 18 months. As the region’s small business owners look for opportunities to bring in clientele and customers, the Greater Des Moines Partnership has also embraced new ways of promoting and assisting those business owners in changing course as circumstances evolve. These new initiatives have included everything from implementing a Leading in Times of Challenge podcast that highlights leadership to creating outdoor events that support local business districts, such as the Downtown DSM Adventure Stories, currently taking place, and the previously held Great DSM Hot Air Balloon Hunt and Hide and Seek events.
Throughout this time, The Partnership has also promoted its #DSMlocal Buying Guides on our website, which share lists of where to shop, eat and spend money in DSM. Below, you will find information on a number of health and well-being businesses to support. We hope you find them helpful as you look for ways to buy local!
Self-Care Buying Guide
Find DSM businesses that promote physical and mental well-being with our Self-Care Buying Guide. From nail salons that offer manicures and pedicures — Lucky Nails in Carlisle even offers ombre nails — to spa services like a hot stone massage from dsm Salon & Spa in Des Moines, relax and recharge thanks to one of the DSM businesses listed.
Fitness Buying Guide
Looking for ways to stay in shape? This week, try a local yoga studio — like Power Life Yoga in Johnston or YogaSix in Ankeny and West Des Moines, take a self-defense class with Triumph Martial Arts in Clive or get a full-body barre workout at Pure Barre, also with locations in Ankeny and West Des Moines.
