DEARBORN — More than two thousand people were on hand for one of the biggest business grand openings in recent memory as the new Dearborn Fresh Supermarket cut the ribbon on its nearly-60,000 square foot facility.

The facility had been the site of a former Kroger grocery store. O’Reilly said that the opening of the new market, which was a big risk in tough economic times, represents a “big turnaround” for the area and said he looked forward to shopping there.
