The former Durand Auto Parts building is looking a lot different today than it did not long ago, and soon, it will be the new home of two downtown Durand businesses.

Allstate agent, Christi Johnson, will move from the corner of Saginaw and Clinton streets into the newly renovated former auto parts building on N. Oak Street.  Christi's husband Bill will move his downtown Durand business, Michigan CNC Technology (MCT) from its location at 127 N. Saginaw Street, which is across the street and down the block from Christi's current office, into the former auto parts store as well.  Bill and Christi Johnson also own Dutch Hollow Golf Club, and Christi Johnson told Durand Now recently that the golf club will likely make use of some space in the new facility as well.  Christi said she expects to be in her new office by November of this year.

A new business is expected to move into the building after MCT moves out, but there was no word on a new tenant for the Allstate office, though there has been some speculation about what could come of the space; a prime location that shares the building with Dr. Rajiva Tirtha's dental practice and features the giant mural of Durand Union Station in the early 1900s.
