Biz Snapshot: Six Businesses Plan to Move, Expand in Macomb Township

A hookah lounge, animal hospital and funeral home are only a few of the new businesses coming to Macomb Township.

Although vacant storefronts still litter the Macomb Township landscape, recent developments in the area's business sector suggest Macomb's economy may once again be on the rise.

In the last two months, Macomb Patch has reported on at least six businesses that have expressed their intent to build in, relocate to or expand their current operations in Macomb Township.

These current and future businesses include:

  • , on the southeast corner of Kingsway Drive and Hayes Road, directly north of . This site was formerly developed for the construction of a shopping center.
  • , on the northwest corner of Hall Road and Romeo Plank. This hospital is relocating from its current location in Clinton Township.
  • , on the southeast corner of Romeo Plank and 23 Mile Road. This will be the first business of its kind in Macomb Township and has met with some opposition from residents.
  • , on Hall Road, east of North Avenue. A 22-year-old Macomb Township business, it was demolished and re-built this year to accomodate more customers and add the Orange Julius menu.
  • , on Hayes Road, north of 21 Mile Road. Owners have decided to expand their business by adding an outdoor patio.
  • , 23 Mile Road. This manufacturer plans to add 36,000 square feet to its current facility and add more than 50 jobs in the next two years.

Home construction is also up in the township, with more than 160 residential building permits being issued so far in 2012. Macomb lead the state last year issuing 388 residential permits.

Still no big box stores on the horizon. Is this a good thing, or would you like to see a Meijer or Kmart move in?

Nope. PLENTY of big boxes within 3-5 miles in most any direction. Stay small, Macomb! We have a large enough war chest that we don't need the extra revenue.

I agree 100% with Dennis!
