On Monday, October 3rd, 2011, East Downtown welcomed a new establishment to the district. A spectacular celebration was held at the new Dearborn Fresh Supermarket, at 13661 Colson St. near the corner of Schaefer Rd. and Michigan Ave (in the former Kroger building). At this event, guests were treated to lots of free food and giveaways, and who doesn’t love that? Hundreds of Dearborn residents and community leaders came to support the new business and see the wide selection of products this new store offers its customers.
Within the establishment, there is so much more than your average line of groceries. Dearborn Fresh also has its own bulk foods section. They also carry many organic, halal, and other specialty items. Still not impressed? There’s also a bakery, the Oasis Cafe for meals on the spot, a flower shop, and a pharmacy. With all this going on in one market, it seems that owners Dr. Fouad and Kamal Turfah aim to bring the concept of “one-stop-shopping” to another level!
