The gym opened in late December.
If you're still looking to get started on your New Year's resolution, Anytime Fitness has just opened in Novi and is accepting new members. The gym opened in late December at 47980 Grand River Avenue across from Providence Park Hospital and is owned by David and Karla Michael of Hartland. The fitness franchise has been around for 10 years and now has nearly 2,000 locations across the nation — all of which its members are welcome to use.

Marcy Watters opened Ms. Ali's Gluten Free Treats in Novi after spending years baking goods for her daughter.
When Marcy Watters found out that her 2-year-old daughter had been diagnosed with Celiac disease, she had to make some major changes to her grocery list. Ali could no longer have gluten, a protein found in many foods processed from wheat and other grains. When Watters couldn't find what she needed in stores, she began baking her own gluten-free goods for her daughter at home. Now more than a decade later, Watters and her daughter still find it difficult to find gluten-free offerings everywhere they go. "Gluten-free has come a long way in the last 12 years, but it's not where we could walk through the mall and she could get a pretzel or a cookie or something like everybody else," Watters said. Until now. Two weeks ago, Watters opened Ms. …

Genji Japanese Steakhouse will be located in West Oaks and bring more than 100 jobs to the city.
The Novi City Council granted one of its three remaining liquor licenses to Genji Japanese Steakhouse, a restaurant set to open in West Oaks, at its meeting Monday night. The business will move into a 10,000-square-foot building that has sat vacant for several years. It is currently being renovated. Council members agreed that the restaurant was a unique enough business that it is deserving of a license; the council is careful about granting its remaining licenses because the city is only allowed to give out a certain number of them based on the city's population. The city now has two licenses remaining. To receive a license, the city asks applicants to demonstrate that the business would provide a good or service that is not presently …
