If anything, Detroit’s downtown retail corridor is unique. Full of one-of-kind eclectic shops and restaurants and the kind of big name retailers we always hoped would come home to Detroit, our shopping district is infused with energy, newfound hope and enterprising entrepreneurs. Now it’s time to celebrate and enjoy them.
On August 10 they’ll be throwing open their doors, mixing up a few cocktails and putting on a spread for customers to come in and enjoy as they shop the blocks of downtown Detroit during Bedrock’s popular annual “Evening on the Ave” event taking place from 5 p.m. to 9 p.m.
Everyone is encouraged participate in the “Passport experience,” which provides shoppers access to special promotions and an opportunity to win awesome prizes. Pick up a Passport at any of the participating retail locations on August 10, collect stamps and turn in your passport at any one of the many “Evening on the Ave” host locations to be eligible for prizes.
Some of TheHUB’s favorite Small Shops retailers will be participating in evening festivities. Stop in House of Pure Vin and see what co-owner Regina Gaines recommends as today’s best pour.
Pop by The TEN Nail Bar and say to Kelli Coleman and Anika Jackson, who’ve been glamming-up Griswold.
Nojo Kicks will be kickin’ too. They’ve got some pretty sweet discounts on the table for Shop the Avenue shoppers.
There are lots of other great shops and restaurants to visit. Hit us back with your favorites. We love to tell the stories of Detroit’s small, independently-owned businesses.
The Qline will ferry riders to stores, restaurants and shops – (Qiine) rides and parking are free. Park in the Z-lot located at 1234 Library Street.
