With the holiday season (and all of the shopping it entails) upon us, there's good reason to feel stressed. Thankfully, several Detroit nonprofits are teaming up to make shopping easy and enjoyable, all while promoting city-based small businesses.
This Saturday, Nov. 28, the Downtown Detroit Partnership is hosting its 12th annual Shop Detroit
event in conjunction with American Express's Small Business Saturday
. Participants will be able to hop on busses at any of nine pickup locations around the city and be shuttled to a handful of retail districts, including the Cass and Canfield district, the shops at the Park Shelton, the Fisher Building, the Livernois Avenue of Fashion, and downtown. Along the way, the good folks at the Detroit Experience Factory
will provide background on the shopping options, as well as historical tidbits about the city. The best part? The tours and shuttles are free and open to the public.
In conjunction with Shop Detroit, the Build Institute will be hosting a Build Bazaar
in the atrium of One Campus Martius. Build Bazaar is a rotating pop-up marketplace celebrating emerging entrepreneurs from Build Institute's small business development program. To learn more about Build Institute's Shop Detroit Build Bazaar, click here
