Cattleman’s Quietly Opens to the Public

Cattleman’s Meat Co. welcomes carnivores to their new and unique store in Center Line with little flair, but lots to offer. According to Cattleman’s Meat Co. Manager, Brandon Ulewicz, the long-time specialty meat market has expanded into the east side with their first location in Center Line. “We have turned an empty former grocery store into a place where you can get not only our top quality specialty meats, but also prepared foods, deli, groceries, and produce all in one place”. The new business replaced the former Shopper’s Market store which closed its doors in 2016. City Manager, Dennis E. Champine indicated that Cattleman’s made a large investment and rebuilt the more than 45,000 square foot facility interior and refaced the exterior in its entirety creating a business that will serve hundreds of thousands of Macomb, Oakland and Wayne County residents on the northeast side of Metro-Detroit. “Center Line is uniquely positioned right in the heart of the seven county southeastern Michigan region, and is literally in the Heart of Metro-Detroit”, said Champine. “Center Line really is a great small-town community where these kind of investments will pay off simply because of its location, where businesses have access to Michigan’s most density populated area. We really are in the center of it all, with more than 500,000 people living with 5 miles of our community”. Champine pointed out that the timing couldn’t be more perfect as the city continues its aggressive efforts to redevelop its Downtown District. Mayor Robert Binson also praised Cattleman’s new location in his community. “What a awesome anchor to other ‘Mom and Pop’ shops and other small, and large commercial business opportunities and investments!”. According to Mayor Binson, the City of Center Line has begun seeing a substantial increase in interest in Center Line’s Downtown District. “The City Hall phones are ringing off the hook ever since Cattleman’s and others have begun arriving in the Downtown District”. Mayor Binson pointed out that many buildings that have sat vacant for years are now beginning to see new tenants, and several vacant properties city-wide now have plans for new development.
