Former automotive employee pursues dream of opening small business
NOVI, Mich., August 11, 2010 — Ed and Pam Kammann are pleased to announce the opening of Wild Birds Unlimited Nature Shop located at 47760 Grand River Avenue in Novi, Mich. As of Wednesday, August 11, the store is open for business.
The 1,600 square-foot store is housed in Westmarket Square, located at the intersection of Grand River Avenue and Beck Road and in close proximity to I-96. Westmarket Square has several large anchor stores, including Kroger, Home Depot and Staples. Other stores and restaurants located at the center include Hershey’s Too Shoes, Applebee’s, Leo’s Coney Island, Olga’s, Zoup, Caribou Coffee and Outback Steakhouse.
“We’re the new home of the best bird food in town,” said Kammann, a former automotive worker and owner of the new Wild Birds Unlimited. “True bird enthusiasts will appreciate the variety and quality of our products.”
This Wild Birds Unlimited carries a variety of seeds and seed blends that are regionally formulated to attract birds.
They also carry a vast inventory of specialty feeders, birdbaths and informational books about birds–all the necessary tools to turn your yard into an aviary hot spot. The average backyard can be visited regularly by 15 to 20 different bird species. However, a bird-friendly yard can attract up to 60 or more different species.
“We are Certified Birdfeeding Specialists who can help customers attract the birds they want according to their yard and habitat, the time of year and our region,” said Kammann. “We can also help with potential backyard problems such as squirrels eating your bird food.”
