Here We Grow Again Fenton


When the K-Mart in Fenton, Michigan on Silver Parkway closed it left a hole in an area of town that is thriving. It did not take long to fill that spot with the recent announcement by Kris Krstovski and K2 Retail Construction. Property owner Krstovski wants to transform the building into a multi-store retail center. With four tenants already committed to occupy retail space, K2, Krstovski’s contracting company has drawn plans for a major upgrade to the building.
