An exciting day for Flint!
I Wish them the best of luck!! Lots of security I hope!The old Herlich's then Rite Aide across the street was run out with crime problems. Herlichs..now theres a flash back!
I'm wondering where the residents of Carriage Town and other downtown neighborhoods did their shopping before Witherbee's?
the closest grocery store is kroger davison road
Well, i have to say... CONGRADULATIONS to Dave and Perry for getting this huge project compleated. I know many others were involved.. But i know Dave and Perry were the steadfast folks in the area that made it truely happen. From conception to compleation.. If i still lived over there, i would be that one guy camping out front to be the first customer.. ha ha ha I am sooooo excited!
i live in the old Herlich building and we would usually go to VG's on Court, Meijers on Pierson or the Family Dollar on 5th ave.
What's nice is the location of this market is kitty-korner behind the Durant, so that means when the Durant opens, there will be more people in walking distance to keep this market alive. When is the Durant open again?
I thought it was going to open for this fall semester. Although I remember hearing that may be delayed a little. Very soon anyway!
A local grocery store is an important part of a neighborhood. Let's hope this is one more step in creating a sense of community downtown.
Good news! =^)
Thanks for commenting. You might enjoy my book about Flint called "Teardown: Memoir of a Vanishing City," a Michigan Notable Book for 2014 and a finalist for the 33rd Annual Northern California Book Award for Creative NonFiction. Filmmaker Michael Moore described Teardown as "a brilliant chronicle of the Mad Maxization of a once-great American city." More information about Teardown is available at www.teardownbook.com.
