Johnvince on Steeprock

If you're in the market for any kind of snack- whether sugary or savory -and you've never been to Johnvince on Steeprock you're missing out on one of the most pleasant shopping experiences in town. The selection and variety is overwhelming... and the prices are reasonable.

    The prices are significantly higher than they need to be. I know, because I used to get bulk stuff wholesale from a very good supplier in Detroit. There have been some visits at which almost everything is stale.

      Do you taste everything in the store? That's dedication. LOL

      It is unfair and misleading to compare with Detroit prices for obvious reasons. Min. wage is way lower, rent is probably 1/20th what JV pays etc. etc..

      I was in Ann Arbor last week and milk was $1.69/gallon.
