and they said there was no retail in detroit…

the lack (or great scarcity) of mainstream retail in detroit is true. but it’s not without its benefits. for one, less temptation… but what you also discover is what can happen when the smaller stores have a chance to survive before getting crowded out by the big players. what you find is something that’s inherently locally curated, something that tends be more authentic and quaint in nature, and something that fosters a greater personal connection with what would otherwise be just another monetary transaction.
