In 2004, After a long and successful career as an educator in Onekama, MI, Beth McCarthy decided to launch a new career. She knew that the area residents and hundreds of seasonal visitors who enjoy Portage Lake and Lake Michigan each summer had few places to shop nearby for gifts and other things they needed.

So, MacBeth & Co. began as a leap of faith in the front third of a 100-year old feed store on M-22.

With partners Sheila Derbes and Kathy Ervin, the “MacBethians” make a trip to one of the MacBeth & Co. locations memorable— one characterized by fine products, dazzling customer service . . . and fun.
