"Our customer base should be densely populated, average income is typically in the 80-125K per year, age is typically 44+, but we are trying to change that currently to target millennial's (ages 25-32)," Hiller said in an email to Patch.
Trenton does not meet any of the Hiller's requirements, but Grosse Ile was close. While the island meets the average income and average age requirements, but with a population of about 11,000 Grosse Ile is not densely populated.
Hiller's has locations throughout Michigan including stores in Ann Arbor, Berkley, Commerce Township, Northville, Plymouth, Union Lake and West Bloomfield.
So far, Patch has reached out to all potential gourmet grocery chains suggested by readers, including one selected by Trenton Mayor Kyle Stack. Can you think of any other gourmet grocery chians you like to see in Trenton or on Grosse Ile?
