How One Black Woman-Owned Detroit Business is Making It Easier to Shop Local

Detroit, MI — As a Black- and woman-owned Detroit-based business, Ask Jennyfer was founded with one intention – to help other small businesses thrive.

When the COVID-19 pandemic hit, it encouraged entrepreneurs – like Ask Jennyfer owner Jennyfer Crawford – to look at her mission in a new way. She began enhancing online platforms at All Things Marketplace to ensure that small business owners had a space of their own to connect with other entrepreneurs and to sell their goods and services to customers.

She discovered that connecting to customers had become a particular challenge at this time. Crawford began highlighting local businesses and their efforts to help others through the COVID-19 crisis on our social channels. Once restrictions began to lift, she transitioned to spotlighting local products at outdoor market settings in and around Detroit.

That’s when inspiration struck.

“We listened to our community and found out that business owners were in need of safe, affordable ways to help store, sell and ship their products,” said Crawford. “At Ask Jennyfer, we want to help them reach customers by providing product storage, order fulfillment, and shipping services they can afford.”
