Meijer Buys Properties; Dunham Sports Coming Soon
The mall has watched as various tenants have come and gone. But maybe there is hope yet for a property that needs a better vision.
The Alpena Mall was bought about a year ago in a foreclosure sale. We are starting to see hope rising for the southern corridor on US-23 South in Alpena.
Construction has been underway for a couple of months now on the requirements to move into that space.
Northshore Furniture recently moved from its location at Washington Avenue and Ripley to the Alpena Mall also.
Meijer recently closed on the purchase of the various parcels of property that it wanted near M-32 West and Bagley. This is the next step in seeing the new Meijer being built starting this spring when the weather breaks.
Infrastructure for the construction has been underway for some time now. Anyone paying attention will see large new power lines and poles near Walmart extending across M-32.
It will be a very welcome sight to see the south side of M-32 cleaned up of old buildings that have sat for so long and unused.
