A new Use for the old JT’s Shaft

The building that housed a former Marquette restaurant and bar that closed last year has just been sold…and by the end of the year it should have a new tenant.

JT’S Shaft had been in business for more than 20 years when it shut down last May. But Wright and Filippis bought the former Shaft property last Thursday. Company employees say they plan to move their Marquette store to the shaft from its current home two blocks away.

They’ll use the existing building and also build a new warehouse there.
