The Marysville A&W on Gratiot Boulevard in Marysville will soon be having their grand opening celebration. Renovations have been ongoing, and Assistant General Manager of the A & W, Isaac Graham, said the restaurant has been in the soft opening phase over the past few months. Graham said now “everything is up and running, providing the best service possible.” The celebration begins on Thursday, November 7th with a ribbon cutting at 4 p.m. with the Blue Water Area Chamber of Commerce. The event will continue until Sunday, November 10th.
During the grand opening celebrations, patrons are invited to bring canned goods to support the Marysville Food Pantry and Marysville Elementary Schools. Anyone who brings in canned goods and makes a purchase will get a free, small root beer float. On Saturday and Sunday, it will be a kid’s weekend as the A&W Mascot, “Rooty,” will be on hand from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. for pictures. There will also be prizes and giveaways while supplies last. Those who donate canned goods over the weekend will also be entered to win a custom Yeti cooler, Visa gift cards, and more.
