Family Fare property sold

N-Family-fareFamily Farm and Home coming to Cedar Springs

By Judy Reed

The former Family Fare Store at 4175 17 Mile Road in Cedar Springs will soon be home to another “Family” store—Family Farm and Home.

Owner Al Fansler confirmed to the Post this week that they had recently purchased the property at 4175 17 Mile Road. “We are very excited about coming to Cedar Springs,” he said.

Family Farm and Home logoFamily Farm and Home, a family-owned company out of Muskegon, was established in 2002. Fansler said they now have 32 stores—30 in Michigan, and two in Indiana. Nearby stores include Sparta, Newaygo, and one on Plainfield in Grand Rapids. Family Farm and Home supplies a wide variety of products in departments such as tools, hardware, automotive, pet, work and casual clothing, footwear, farm supplies, horse and livestock feed, bird food, lawn and garden, and alternative heating.

Fansler explained that they have a lot of work to do with the heating and cooling systems before the store opens. “We plan to be open no later than May 1,” he said.

They plan to hire locally, and will start out with about 15 employees, he said. They will hire more depending on the volume of sales.

Fansler promised to keep the Post updated as the time gets closer for the store to open.

    We already have tractor supply and white creek lumber. We don’t need another one.

    Isn’t ‘tractor supply’ enough!? This could be something actually useful that the town don’t already have!
