Growing Retail with Model D

Tuesday morning the Detroit Yacht Club hosted another successful Model D Speaker Series session. This event one focused on growing retail in the city. The panel included successful recent and veteran entrepreneurs. The overarching message: the opportunities to meet basic needs exist within the city, where it does not in the suburbs. Brand loyalty must be created by small entrepreneurs before outside investors and big box retailers discover the potential of the city. Detroit residents are starved of essential food and clothing retail. Demand outweighs current capacity, which causes more than a billion dollars to be dropped outside the city.
