MACkite Store Locations


While many of our products are conveniently available online, the best way for you to experience MACkite's fun attitude and exceptional customer service is to come see us in person. MACkite's two stores are open year-round in Grand Haven, MI, and our sister store, Mackinaw Kite Co, is open seasonally for the warmer months in historic Mackinaw City, usually between May and October. Both cities make great family vacation destinations- if you haven't been yet, you really must!
