Charlie V partners with Boater City Marketplace. As we continue to grow, expanding our product availability with local companies who share the same values is our goal. Customers will now have the option to shop online and in person.

“Giving the customer the option to purchase locally made sunglasses in a store provides them with the convenience to receive their new shades instantly,” Gerard, Founder of Charlie V.

Why Did Charlie V Partner With BCM?

We are advocates of supporting local businesses. When we discovered that Boater City Marketplace shares the same beliefs, we had to reach out. By partnering, we knew this would have a positive impact on our company, BCM, and the community at large.

Provide the community with a brand they trust

There are many options for sunglasses out there. But we wanted to provide the local community with a high-quality product that’s made in their backyard. By doing so, customers can have peace of mind knowing Charlie V stands behind its product. They don’t have to interact with “corporate” customer service. Everything we do is right here locally.

Give consumers the option to support a local business

It’s no surprise that residents in New Baltimore, Michigan would rather support a local business – it’s just who they are. It allows the community to grow, flourish and gives a sense of accomplishment when purchasing locally-made products from a locally-operated store.

The quaint town of New Baltimore offers a variety of small businesses ranging from boutiques to restaurants and more.

Provide BCM with a product they know

One of the most important reasons why we chose to partner with Boater City Marketplace is to provide them with a high-quality product they know. They understand the passionate history and story of Charlie V. Standing by our hand-made products and our attention to detail is what differentiates us from other sunglass companies.

Additionally, we wanted to offer an expansion to Boater City’s lineup of sunglasses. Due to this, BCM is likely to grow its business while offering locally-made sunglasses to its customers.
