Family Fare was founded in 1966 in Hudsonville, Michigan. The company operates a small chain of grocery stores in Michigan and 4 other states. As of 1990, the company operates as a subsidiary of SpartanNash.
In 2004, SpartanNash began to consolidate stores under two names, Family Fare and Glen’s Markets. Family Fare began expanding their brand via the acquisition of other stores, including Great Day Markets, Prevo’s Markets, and D&W Fresh Markets. Even some Glen’s Markets were later rebranded to the Family Fare name. The company is well known for acquiring older store locations, then remodeling them to include new pharmacies, updated fixtures, and adding touches such as in-store Starbucks or other cafes.
The company has been expanding slowly throughout North Dakota by the acquisition and rebranding of Econofoods and Sunmart stores. Family Fare has headquarters located in Hudsonville, Michigan.
