Ebels Family Center was formed in 1978; however, the business has a history dating back to 1920 when it was founded by the great, great, grandfather of current majority owner Mark Ebels and his wife Dawn. Ebels was formed to provide a more convenient way for locals to purchase healthy food and home goods without the long commute to more populated areas. The store has grown into a destination general store serving all of Northern Michigan and even parts of the Upper Peninsula, providing hundreds of customers with everyday products. Ebels is a true General Store selling a full line of groceries, including a significant and well-known meat department, clothing lines and general household items.
