business news in context, analysis with attitude

Crain’s Detroit Business reports that “the flurry of lawsuits over former Farmer Jack stores continues with a commercial real estate broker now suing the closed stores' parent company.

“On the heels of landlords claiming they have not been paid rent since June, a lawsuit has been filed by Farmington Hills-based Howard Schwartz Commercial Real Estate LLC, claiming The Great Atlantic and Pacific Tea Co. Inc. has not paid the commissions or expenses the firm is owed.”

This is the 26th lawsuit filed against A&P in the Detroit area. Crain’s notes that “in 2007, A&P decided to leave the region, vacating 66 stores. Twenty were either bought or leased by Kroger Co., and several others have been leased or subleased.”
