Last week we spoke about the the status of the old Superfresh in Spring Valley.
Thanks to Jonathan for sharing:
“Well, this is the location that Plum Market (based out of Ann Arbor, MI) lists as a future location. Their locations in Michigan are fantastic and this would be a great addition to the neighborhood.”

Change of plans at Spring Valley Superfesh? A couple weeks ago fences went up limiting (but not restricting) access to the parking lot. Late last week the graffiti that had collected was painted over, and this weekend a “For Lease” sign went up on the building. There is also a “For Lease” sign on the space that used to house DeCarlo’s. Did the developers finally give up in light of neighborhood resistance and interest rates?”

Thanks to Jason for sending from Spring Valley Saturday.
