THE NEW SAGE MARKET was celebrated on Friday, May 11 in Laingsburg with a ribbon-cutting event in front of the store. Owner Sam Shango is shown in the center holding the scissors and standing beside Shiawassee Regional Chamber of Commerce (SRCC) Vice President Sue Kadlek. Shango had officially opened the market in January, sharing that he had kept all of the employees from when the business had been Mark’s Food Pride.
Despite the rain, many of the employees, SRCC ambassadors, and Laingsburg area representatives, gathered for the photo. SEDP President/CEO Justin Horvath and Vice President Brent Jones were there for the celebration, as well.
Sage Market is located at 7400 Woodbury Rd., Laingsburg, and offers a wide variety of grocery and household items. The store has been reorganized to make shopping easier and more efficient.
