Two weeks ago, the Post published a story questioning the rumor that Family Fare, a SpartanNash store located on 17 Mile Road, east of White Creek, did not renew their lease. We reported that the property and building were for sale and rumors had been circulating for months that Family Fare had not renewed their lease, which is up in the fall.
At the time, SpartanNash said they did not respond to store closing rumors.
However, according to employees at Family Fare, a meeting was recently held with all employees letting them know that the store is closing September 6, and the pharmacy is closing next week, August 6, with all prescriptions being sent to Rite Aid, in Cedar Springs.
After hearing the news Wednesday morning, The Post called and spoke with a representative of SpartanNash, who said they would try to get more information for us. We did not hear from them by press time, but will give you the information as soon as we hear more.
