Woman Found Living in Rooftop Sign of Michigan Grocery Store

A 34-year-old unidentified woman was discovered living in the rooftop sign of a Family Fare store in Midland, Michigan, authorities revealed.

She had been residing there for approximately a year, setting up the space with flooring, a Keurig coffee maker, and a computer, according to Brennon Warren, a spokesperson for the Midland Police Department.

Store staff members alerted the police on April 23 after contractors working on the roof found her, Warren stated. The triangular sign on the rooftop, estimated to be 15 to 20 feet tall, housed her makeshift living space, measuring about 10 to 15 feet in length, five feet wide, and six to eight feet at its highest peak.

Upon being informed that she couldn't reside there, the woman left without incident. The store plans to assist her in retrieving her belongings at a later date.

In addition to the flooring, Keurig, and computer, the woman had a mini desk, printer, pantry, and other miscellaneous items inside the sign, Warren mentioned.

She declined assistance from homeless services in the area, Warren noted.

SpartanNash, the company operating Family Fare, expressed pride in its associates for responding to the situation with compassion and professionalism. They emphasized the need for community partnership in addressing the widespread issue of safe, affordable housing.
