Hersey is a village in Osceola County in the U.S. state of Michigan. The population was 374 at the time of the 2000 census. The village is located within Hersey Township. Hersey is a small rural community that started as a lumber town in the early 1800s. The Hersey General Store, which was established in 1869, was lost to an arson fire on Labor Day 2008. The commercial district now consists of nothing, since a sole gas station/pizza house, the Hersey Party Store closed summer of 2009. The beautiful Rails to Trails bike and winter sports path passes through Hersey, running immediately to Reed City on the western side, and to Evart on the eastern. The village and a locally-run campground, Blodgett Landing, (www. blodgettlanding. com), are located at the confluence of the Hersey and Muskegon Rivers, two of the best trout streams in the state of Michigan. Located on the eastern edge of town lies a bridge with a clearance of 20 feet over the Muskegon River. This bridge-jumping-enthusiast's dream has long been a popular bridge-jumping site for youngsters and older on hot summer days.

What is consumer protection law?

Consumer protection refers to the laws designed to aid retail consumers of goods and services that have been improperly manufactured, delivered, performed, handled, or described. Such laws provide the retail consumer with additional protections and remedies not generally provided to merchants and others who engage in business transactions, on the premise that the consumers do not enjoy a sufficient bargaining position with respect to the businessmen with whom they deal and therefore should not be strictly limited by the legal rules that govern recovery for damages among businessmen. The overarching goal is to protect individuals and the interest of the public in general from unfair and misleading activity in business and commerce (such as false advertising and deceptive trade practices) and scams perpetrated by criminals (such as identity theft and pyramid schemes) that harm a substantial number of consumers.
