Gibraltar Trade Center

The Gibraltar Trade Center was a public market in the Metro Detroit region of the U.S. state of Michigan. As of its closure, it had one remaining location in Mount Clemens, Michigan which was previously home to the Mount Clemens Race Track. From 1980 to 2014, there was a second location in Taylor, Michigan.

The company blamed its closure on the rise of online sales. According to CEO Bob Koester, the “Gibraltar Gun and Knife Shows” and the “Gibraltar Rug and Furniture” store in Warren, Michigan will remain open and operational.

New Baltimore Trade Center Rebound From Pandemic

Business was good until March 2020 when the pandemic abruptly slowed things down and forced a three-month closure, according to Steven, who owns and operates the facility with his wife, Valene. “We were doing pretty good in 2019 but when COVID hit and we closed, we lost a lot of vendors and all of our foot traffic,” he said.

He and his wife, who live in Clay Township, used their personal savings during the slow down to stay afloat. He sought financial assistance by applying for pandemic-related Small Business grants or loans but was rejected, he said. The business was ineligible for payroll protection funds because the couple do most of the work with few employees. He said customer traffic started to rebound about halfway through last year and is getting better but still not to where it was before.

The owners have gotten creative with a fishfly as its logo — a nod to a summer theme in the lakefront town — as well as an interactive web site and an active Facebook page. The center each month stages a live auction at which anyone can sell or buy items. The auctions are held on Thursdays and special shows and events arranged  often.


New Baltimore Trade Center has something for everybody. They offer different events on the weekends. The vendors offer a huge variety from clothes to pop culture items, antiques and collectibles, pet supplies, jerky, fudge, and so much more.
