An vacant grocery store now has new life in Eastpointe.

Fresh Choice Market Place in St. Clair Shores

I’m sure many of you are like me when we pass a vacant shopping center or empty “out of business” store. My heart sinks, I wonder about all of the employees and how many are searching for new jobs.

The cycle of business closings = unemployment = more foreclosure homes in Macomb County is vicious.

Yesterday while out and about I glanced to my left as I was heading eastbound on 9 Mile Road at the Eastpointe – St. Clair Shores border and was absolutely thrilled to see a new grocery store operating at the old Farmer Jacks location on the northeast corner of 9 Mile and Kelly. Of course I had to stop in and check it out.
Tempted by ice cream in St. Clair Shores
Fresh Choice MarketPlace was sparkling clean inside and I noticed right away that they carry the Spartan brand of items. They also tempted me with their 2 for $6 Edys Ice Cream on special this week. Tempted enough to bring home some butter pecan and mint chocolate chip!

If you haven’t been in the area for a bit, stop in and try out Fresh Choice MarketPlace. Give them a bit of your business. I’m sure they and the employees there will be grateful you did!

    Kris, We haven’t caught up but I can see you have been very busy. Congrats on a great outside blog. *This looks fantastic.*

    I’ll be looking around a bit.

    I wanted to message about the store on 9 and kelly that you talked about. after reading what you said i decided on giving it a try. I am really surprised with the outcome.It is sensational its a walk in and walk out. They always keep the lines short and the market is spotless. Clean at all times you can eat off the floor, its so spotless. We should get the neighborhood more involved instead of them focusing on the chains. The prices are great and more people should realise that they would save money!

    Hi Jon,

    Thanks so much for not only finding this older article, but taking the time to write about your experience at this market.

    I still frequent it and have not been disappointed. As you said, clean at all times and the prices are wonderful.

    Thanks again,

    Kris Wales

    Isn’t 9 mile and I-94 the Eastpointe-Sainte Claire Shores Border?

    Yes Les, it is. In fact, I just pulled up the address of Fresh Choice Marketplace and it is showing an Eastpointe address – not a St. Clair Shores one.
