News Good Your www.MailMaxOnline.com POSTMASTER: Please deliver on October 27, 2012 October 27, 2012 Volume 13, Ver. 43 Moody on The Market S ome people are more than satisfied resting on their laurels, simply rak-ing in the profits and hoping that aging infrastructure holds up under daily pressures to perform. Then, too, there’s the team of Mike & Sue Knytych of South Haven. Together they own a number of local McDonald’s franchise restaurants in places like Benton Harbor, South Haven and Coloma. They are among the early adopters of the sleek new look being taken on by the international hamburger chain, having recently completely rebuilt their restaurant at Pipestone and I-94 in Benton Charter Township. Even though that was a major league undertaking that can be very dis-ruptive to everyday life, the Knytychs proceeded to bring the substantial makeover to their Coloma store at the Coloma exit off I-94 as well. A cel-ebratory ribbon cutting ceremony was conducted on October 18 th introducing the Grand Re-Opening of the popular shop at 150 E. Ryno Road. They dramatically updated the lobby, the kitchen, the PlayPlace and added the slick new dual-lane drive-thru that has been a huge hit at the Benton Harbor franchise. A VIP Party was held as a part of the ribbon cutting ceremony and folks from far and wide are enjoying the fresh new look at McDonalds in Coloma. Congratulations Mike and Sue, and keep up the great work ethic and your outstanding customer service to the entire community. The success of a relatively new fellow Coloma merchant has led to her need to find substantially larger quarters to operate from. Jennifer Moore opened her new consignment shop called Back on the Rack earlier this year and has enjoyed explosive growth to the extent that she simply could no longer sustain that space. As a result, Moore will relocate later this week to downtown Watervliet. Back on the Rack will soon occupy the former Gamble’s store in the central business district of Watervliet to accommodate her increased need for space. You can still reach her by phone for now at 468-2454. Congratulations on your stellar rise, Jennifer and best of luck in your new location in the Paw Paw Lake neighborhood. Regular visitors to the St. Joseph Farmers Markets this past summer, and for several sum-mers running, have enjoyed quality jams, jel-lies, preserves, syrups, honeys, granola and more from the outstanding artisans at Thornburg & Company. Just because the markets have ended for the season doesn’t mean you have to go without, however. Ryan & Julie Thornburg have been working over the course of the sum-mer getting their new shop ready to unveil it to you this fall. Thornburg & Company will offi-cially open their doors for the holiday season beginning Thursday, November 8 th .
