There are two new stores coming to the long-tenured town, in which both will impact travelling greatly.
The first will be a gas station and convenience store located on the south corner of Stimson Ave. and N Chestnut St, across from Happy Tails pet grooming. Under the same ownership as Ashton General Store, the store will also provide meat services.
The project is current on hold for an answer on the request for fuel service.
The Reed City City Council has provided full support for all requests from the owners of this new store and at our latest July council meeting,” Mayor Roger Meinert said. “We endorsed their request for a liquor license application to the State of Michigan.”
Right across the street, at 419 N. Chestnut St., will be a Biggby Coffee shop. The franchise will take over the location of the old Northend Grocery and be owned by Sonya Bielecki and Kelly Prielipp.

According to a corresponding social media post, the old store’s “shell” had been demolished after being cleared of asbestos.
