By Ben Freed

Busch’s Fresh Food Market is making progress on their renovation of a former Farmer Jack location in Canton and expects to open the store early next year, according to a report from the Canton Observer.

Carol Vega, the company’s director of facilities, told the observer the store should open in February or March of 2014. Once open it will be the 16th Busch’s location, all of which are located in Southeast Michigan.

According to a press release, when Busch’s bought the 54,000-square-foot space at 225 S. Canton Center Road, the store will employ approximately 100 full- and part-time workers when it is completed.

According to the Observer report, Busch’s plans to extensively renovate the interior and exterior of its new store, including new outdoor areas for flowers, produce and a “park-like area.”

Always good to see more jobs being added. However, Busch's needs to up its game. Lots of competition out there with Hillers, Whole foods, Trader Joe's, and an improved Meijer's. Busch's stores seem outdated (Plymouth Rd and Main St), and overpriced.

Amen to being overpriced. But then again, if you shop @ Whole Foods it probably seems like a bargain.

Man, I wish they would renovate that old Farmer Jack Packard and Golfside. They are a great store.

Busch's is a great grocery store. Canton is lucky to have them.

Sorry to hear this. Canton will want to send twenty of its franchise businesses to Ann Arbor for retaliation. Heaven knows there aren't enough Eata-burger-pita-yogurt or designer-shoe-purse-dress-pants franchises in Ann Arbor now.

"Retaliation"? I like Busch's.
