MD Bagel Fragel Forced To Move

. December 31, 2018.
MD Bagel Fragel

In October 2018, MD Bagel Fragel owners, mother Patricia and son Michael Rockette, were given a 48-hour notice to vacate their shop at 1760 Plymouth Road on the north side of Ann Arbor. The Rockettes requested and were granted an initial extension until November 30, but thanks to public outcry and community organizing, the move out was extended until December 30. At this time, the Rockettes are still looking for a new location on the north side of Ann Arbor, and the community has raised $7,000 to help with the move. The new owners of the Plymouth location are based in Ohio and plan to open a cannabis dispensary.
