The payday advance and check-cashing venue won't be allowed to buy or sell gold as part of its services.
It will be business at usual at the Cash Advance on Gratiot this month after the Clinton Township board of trustees denied the store's request to add gold buy-sell to its current services. Offering payday advance and check-cashing, the 37569 S. Gratiot store approached the township board Monday for a special land use permit that would have allowed them to operate a gold buy-sell business. The township board voted unanimously to deny this request, with several members voicing concerns that businesses offering gold buy-sell have not always been beneficial to the area's in which they are offered.

Campus Deli is one of Clinton Township's newest eateries, opening in mid-February at 43301 Garfield Rd.
The motivation for opening Campus Deli can be summed up in one bite. “A good corned beef sandwich,” said Lou Farneti, who co-owns the Clinton Township eatery with Dino Tata. “A good corned beef sandwich is hard to come by.” Having enjoyed a successful partnership the past several years flipping houses, Farneti and Tata decided to try their luck in the restaurant business. “We were partners in remodeling and selling homes and when the market turned around, we figured we would try something different,” Farneti said. The pair opened Campus Deli in mid-February at 43301 Garfield Rd. in Campus Plaza, located on the northwest corner of 19 Mile and Garfield. Adopting a college sports theme – as evidenced by the countless team banners on the …

From new pumps to an expanded convenience store, the gas station at 42020 Garfield Rd. is slated to undergo a top-to-bottom renovation that will temporarily close the location.
With cracked pavement, aging pumps and a convenience store far too small for the station’s growing needs, the Mobil Gas at the northeast corner of Garfield and Canal is long overdue for a facelift. Recognizing this need, the station's owner, Safiedine Oil, Inc., has announced it will begin a full-scale renovation on th site this spring. “We’re going to do an addition on the south side of the building, about 1,000 square feet, that will open the store up so you can drive all the way around it,” said Tony Kaddo, Safiedine operations manager. “We’re also going to repave the lot, reconstruct the canopy and install new pumps.” The current convenience store will also be gutted and redesigned both inside and out. “We’re a large company and we own…

The latest renovations to the Hall Road entertainment center have been designed to enhance the venue's year-round appeal.
With its go-karts, mini-golf and water games, C.J. Barrymore’s is a popular summertime retreat, but renovations now underway look to make the Hall Road venue a year-round entertainment center. Owner Rick Iceberg said he hopes this latest expansion, which includes electric bumper cars, mini-bowling and new arcade games, will increase the venue’s wintertime appeal. “It’s one more thing,” Iceberg said of the renovations. “We’re trying to expand our winter business.
