Does anyone know what they're preparing to open over there.

Judging from the outside design of the building, it appears to be a Burlington Coat Factory. Can anyone confirm this?

Anyone else remember the 8 Mile/Gratiot store as Shoppers Fair? And then nearer Gratiot there used to be a Chatham Supermarket and a Thom McAnn Shoe Store.

I remember the Shoppers Fair well. My mother-in-law worked there. They had a great record section. I also remember when that was Eastwood Park.

I remember when the Kmart opened, everyone who lived in my 7 & Gratiot neighborhood was happy they didn't have to drive all the was to the one at 9 mile and Harper.

I used to catch a bus for Downtown at Gratiot and 8 Mile right by the "old" White castle that was there.
