Mongers’ Provisions

Ferndale shop Provisions is not only expanding to a second location in Detroit – which will be at 4240 Cass Avenue, Suite 111 – but a name change. The speciality cheese, chocolate, and charcuterie shop will now be known as Mongers’ Provisions. “It came to us, why not use the word monger?” said William Werner, who owns the shop with Zach Berg. “That’s what we do and its plural possessive because there’s more than one of us. We hope that as we train and grow there will be a lot more of us, too.” Given all the space in the new shop – coming in at 1,028 square feet – there will be plenty of options for others to become mongers, or ‘eaters,’ in French, especially since they will be offering more than 100 different types of cheese and plan to double their current chocolate selection. Oh, and since they have room for a meat slicer, expect more charcuterie. They are shooting for a late November opening and plan to offer events and classes, ideally by early December. “All of those things are immensely exciting to us,” he said.
