Shopping the Grated Strip

I get my oil changed at Goodrich Tire on Grand River at Woodward. In waiting for my car, I decided to take a look around the area. I had always wondered about the stores between the underpass and Grand River on both sides of Woodward that are covered in heavy grates. If Somerset is your shopping comfort level, I would not suggest this trip. However, if you don’t mind roughing it and enjoy finding diamonds in the rough, I would recommend the strip for inexpensive clothing, shoes, and home goods. Also, if you are into the flashier things you can find at Bizzare in the New Center One building, this is the place for you with hats and shoes dyed to any possible colour you can imagine. My favorite discovery was the Detroit Hardware Company. I am so angry now that I drove out to big box stores, when I could have gotten everything here at comparable prices and with a lot less aggravation. Everything is manageable, and you get everything from cookware, office supplies, gardening supplies, hardware, lumber, cleaning products, and anything else of use in and around the home.

    Did you mean Grand Blvd instead of Grand River? The post makes much more sense to me if so. :)
