Is A New Store Opening In Old Farmer Jack In Burton?
Do you remember the former Farmer Jack grocery store on Center and Lapeer Roads in Burton? The store permanently closed in 2007 and the building has been vacant ever since.
Fast forward 16 years later to 2023, and there are rumors flying about a potential new business opening in this particular spot. Have you heard the rumors too?
The rumors may have started over a message posted on the Burton City Chat Facebook page. A member of the group posted the following,
Additional group members were quick to point out that the post may have come from a troll account. However, others commented that they have seen workers coming and going from the storefront.
So what could possibly be opening in the vacant building? Many people speculated a marijuana store or mattress store, and even one person chimed in hoping for an Old Country Buffet.
It's clear that the mattress store and Old Country Buffet comments are jokes, and no one can confirm what exactly is going on with the former Farmer Jack location. You can check out the actual post and the entire list of comments here.
Call me crazy, but it would be nice to see a store or business open in the vacant building that Burton and surrounding areas actually need.
