The Port Huron McDonald’s on Pine Grove Avenue operated by local business owner Markus Schulz, opened this morning at 6:00 a.m., offering a special gift to the first 100 customers in line. A ribbon cutting ceremony will be held at 9 a.m. featuring elected officials, managers and crew, and Jeff and Tracy Willard, founders of the Hunter Hospitality House.
