From BTB to Venezuala

In addition to Precor's big-ticket items, AHF carries plenty of small concessions for the less committed: free weights, stability balls, jump ropes. And Burns says American Home Fitness might be in for yet another move. The lease is up next year, and he's hoping the store will move back where it first opened seven years ago: Cranbrook Village on Eisenhower. "Back then, it wasn't the right place for us, but now with Whole Foods and REI there, it would be perfect."

American Home Fitness, 3365 Washtenaw, 389-2550. Mon.-Fri. 10 a.m.-8 p.m., Sat. 10 a.m.-6 p.m., Sun. noon-5 p.m. www.americanhomefitness.com

When the Sunshine Fruit Market departed suddenly early last summer from Packard next to Aladdin Market, property manager Janet Seeburger described it to us as an eviction (Marketplace Changes, August). A reader came to the market's defense in a September Calls & Letters item. Recently, another chided us for calling it a closing--and pointed us to Ypsilanti.

Owned by Thaer Almurshedi, Sunshine reopened in August in a former dollar store at 1510 Washtenaw as the Sunshine Supermarket. It is still managed by Maha Ahmed, who also managed the Packard location. A saucy and irrepressible fireball, Ahmed laughed heartily at Seeburger's characterization of the small claims court case that preceded the move as an eviction: "She can call it whatever she wants. The A/C was broken for four months. We had a lot of damage, and we kept going to her to fix it, and finally we broke the lease."
