New site for senior center planned

The former 47,000-square-foot Village Market grocery store at 08337 M-140 Hwy., in South Haven Township, has been purchased by Senior Services of Van Buren County. The agency plans to renovate at least half of the facility into a senior center and lease other space to potential partners.

SOUTH HAVEN — A nonprofit that provides services and activities for older adults will soon be breathing new life into a grocery store that has sat idle for two years.

Senior Services of Van Buren County announced this week that it has reached an agreement with Village Market Food Centers and Murk Management to purchase the former Village Market building at 08337 M-140 Hwy. Once renovations are complete, Senior Service hopes to open its new Senior Center in South Haven sometime next year.
