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.

Stomping Grounds recently began serving up 24 flavors of ice cream, and offering a new sandwich lineup.  Try "The Chicken," featuring chicken salad on a croissant with a touch of raspberry sauce.  Or grab a breakfast burrito for just $1.50 all day long!

If you haven't been inside recently, take a load off in the former bank building's vault, where guests can now sit, relax, eat and drink.


Standby for news on another business moving into downtown Durand soon!

It was a Flint staple, founded in 1911, and served residents of Flint, Owosso and other communities throughout the state.  The 37 locations of the Hamady Bros. Supermarket chain was the destination for grocery-getting for 80 years, until stores began to close after an embezzlement and bankruptcy scandal, and an eventual sale to the McColgan family, who operated remaining stores before selling to Al Kessel, former Hamady Vice President, in 1991.
