Glimmers of recovery in Detroit retail scene

I’m not trying to be too sunshine and rainbows about the retail outlook, though. When I searched for stores nearby to Whole Foods, I couldn’t find much.

The closest Target was 5 miles away, literally in a whole other country — Windsor, Ontario. I needed to pick up a new tripod and had to drive all the way to Dearborn to find a mass market general merchandise store and I didn’t see a single other supermarket on my way.

That was pretty depressing, and a sign that although great things are happening in Detroit, much work is left to be done.
