Busch’s Fresh Food Market in Carleton announced Monday that the grocery store will close at the end of March and reopen under new ownership and new name.
The current location, 12599 Grafton Road, has been a Busch’s Market for 23 years and plans to close on March 31.
The landlord of the property will then continue running the location as a grocery store under the name KAS Market.
Gary Pfeil, president and CEO of Busch’s Fresh Food Market, said in a statement that they were unable to reach a lease agreement with the landlord, and that all of the nearly 50 employees will be able to either stay in Carelton at the new store or offered positions at other Busch’s locations.
“We have enjoyed serving the Carleton community for the last 23 years,” Pfeil said. “Although we were unable to reach an agreement with the landlord that would allow us to maintain that location we’re pleased that he wants to run the store in Carleton himself. Also, all of the 49 employees working in our Carleton location will be offered positions at other Busch’s locations if they elect not to stay in Carleton.”
Busch’s Fresh Food Market has served Southeast Michigan for more than 40 years as a premier local fresh food market, according to the company.
Busch’s is Michigan’s largest family-owned independent grocery retailer with 16 locations in southeast Michigan.
An official opening date for the new bridge has yet to be announced to the public, but it has been mentioned at past Huron Board of Trustees meetings that the new bridge could be completed sometime in the spring or early summer.
Crews have been working at the site since fall.
Check back with the Huron Hub for updates on the Waltz Road Bridge when we receive them.
Here are some other articles related to the bridge project:
Last May, the Van Buren School Board approved making lacrosse an official varsity spring sport beginning with the 2018-19 school year. They also approved a cooperative agreement with Huron High School in New Boston, meaning students that attend Huron High School are eligible to play for the Belleville lacrosse team. Lacrosse has been a successful club sport at the youth, junior varsity and varsity levels since 2007. This decision by the school board will make lacrosse more available and affordable for students from Belleville and Huron to play the sport.
The Spring season will be coming up soon (March through June) and BLAA (Belleville Lacrosse Athletic Association), which is the entity running the Belleville/Huron youth programs, are looking for players that are interested in playing the spring season. Although Lacrosse has been around Belleville since 2007, it is still a relatively unknown sport so BLAA is offering some upcoming training sessions for both the HS and Youth players before the season starts.
High school players: January 16 – March 6 (Wednesdays)
Location: High Velocity in Canton
Time: 3:30 p.m. – 5:00 p.m.
Youth players: January 19 – March 2 (Saturdays)
Location: Pryde in Canton
Time: 10:00 a.m. – 11:00 a.m.
If you have a student 3rd grade through 12th grade from Belleville or Huron that is interested in playing and wants to get into the sessions, please contact the BLAA board at Bellevillelaxboosters@gmail.com for sign-up or to answer any questions you may have.
BLAA is also having a bowling fundraiser at Lodge Lanes that is open to the public on Friday, January 11 at Lodge Lanes in Belleville with check-in starting at 6:30pm. Cost is $25.00/person which gets you two games of bowling, shoes, and one pizza per lane. There will be raffles, 50/50, and other prizes. All proceeds go to BLAA to support and fund our youth Lacrosse program. Space is limited so if you are interested in tickets, please contact us at Bellevillelaxboosters@gmail.com.
