Store Director Lisa Landis said, however, customers have nothing to fear because the Davison Township VG’s will remain open.

Based off the amount of business done at the Davison Township store, and a loyal customer-base, Landis said her store will not be closing.

“We’ve been open since 1980 and we make sure our customers are taken care of,” she said. “We have a great team here and we love what we do.”

Landis said the Davison VG’s, 5303 Davison Rd., employs 104 people, many of whom have been with the store for more than 25 years.

Landis herself has been with VG’s for 28 years when she started out as a deli clerk. She later went on be an assistant store manager at the Clio store and returned to Davison in 2007 as store director.

Recently, Landis earned a Top Women In Grocery award. She said it is a great honor for her to represent Spartan Foods as an award recipient — but adds she could not have done it alone.

“I wouldn’t have been able to do it without the great team I have here,” said Landis. “Everyone gets along so well, they help each other.”

She said VG’s is known for having more than 200 homemade salads, cheeseballs and dips, while it is also known for assisting the elderly in the community by delivering their groceries to them so they don’t have to go out of their homes or apartments.

“It’s all about taking care of the customer,” she said.

Lisa and her husband, Dave, have two adult children — son Joe and daughter Jamie. The couple graduated from Davison schools and still live in Davison today.
