Hello, and welcome. Here you will find an ongoing list of the many Saginaw Township area businesses that have CLOSED in the last few years. All of the featured photos were taken From 2006 to 2009. The date of this post will be the last updated date.

Photos not all available, but will update the postings for new CLOSINGS. Its been a tough year for Saginaw.

These are real photos of real businesses that have either closed their doors or are in the process of doing so. Has there ever in the history of Saginaw Township been so many VACANT businesses?

While it is true that not every business can make it, and many do fail. But why are so many long standing businesses in Saginaw closing down recently? Why all the empty buildings? Compare the landscape to Bay City and Midland surrounding areas. Those communities don't seem to have the same effects.

Feel free to post your comments about this site, or about any location closing, or just general opinions about what is happening to the Saginaw area business community. The citizens of this community need to speak up and do something! Contact your local officials and congressmen too. Make a difference!

UPDATE: April 28, 2016
Many years have gone by since the blog was last updated and after seeing the Saginaw community continue to decline, I have decided to work on adding more recent closings and related posts. Stay tuned for more to come!
