City officials and chamber menbers gathered at the corner of Saginaw and Clinton streets to celebrate -- officially -- the opening of Stomping Grounds Coffee Shop, under new ownership, with a ceremonial ribbon cutting.
Ernie and Nikole Hartzell took over the reigns of Stomping Grounds, located at 200 N Saginaw Street in downtown Durand, from Jason and Sherry Rathburn on January 2nd of this year. In the days prior, Nikole told Durand Now "It's been a dream of mine to open a bakery/coffee [shop]." She went on to say "We both feel it was meant to be," speaking both of her family and the Rathburns, who opened Stomping Grounds in May of 2015.
