Spartan Stores plans $50 Million in improvements this year

5 posts in this topic

Spartan Stores is certainly having a good year, and have big plans for the coming year.

BYRON TOWNSHIP -- A bigger and better Family Fare store in Gaines Township is part of a $50 million capital campaign Spartan Stores Inc. is moving ahead for the new fiscal year.

Before the year ends next spring, Spartan expects to remodel six stores, open a new one and relocate another -- along with the addition of six fuel stations.

The plan comes as the Byron Township-based grocery wholesaler and retailer reports a strong 2009. Year-end profits rose 13 percent to $38.8 million, or $1.78 per share, from $34.3 million, or $1.58 per share, in the prior year.

Could really use a store near Heritage Hill. *HINT*

Over at the Family Fare location on 60th and Kalamazoo SE, they completly gutted that one out and are in the process of getting ready to rebuild it. There is a sign that says that the family fare is undergoing construction and that it will be back in the fall of 2009. I don't know if there is more to tear down yet or not. Back in 2003-2004. The family store on Lake Michigan Drive was remodeled. Not sure if they plan to do anymore with it or build a gas station around the property. Personally, I would like it if they moved out to where the old D&W store used to be on Rememberance Road. It's a much bigger store in my opinion and looks nicer.
