A new grocery store is always good, and it will bring retail activity to a place where it currently doesn't exist.

Eh, A Glory, Dollar Store, Beauty Store, Metro PCS, and Cash Advance are definite.

Welcome to the inner city, what do you expect? Hillers, Caribou Coffee, Little Daddy's, Barnes and Noble, Deli Unique? Not in this neighborhood.

Success is comparative, you know. For three decades, maybe more, nobody was building anything in these neighborhoods. But it's always easy to win fifty dollars and say "you know, I could have won sixty".

Regardless of the type of retail it will create jobs. Something the city desperately needs.

Mackinaw,I was just about to comment on the beauty supply stores.We probably have too many beauty supply stores,they are almost as frequent and easy to find as a liquor store in detroit.

YAY! The new super retail will also lure more Hispanic/Mexican businesses into the Livernois/ McGraw area.

For all the beauty supply stores around there sure are some ugly people around. I need to go to the liquor stores just so the women look good.
Hey, now I see how this "economy" works!

If the demand is there for beauty supply stores, then there's never too many of them. Now, when some start closing down, then we won't have as many.
BTW, if the strip mall is off of McGraw and Livernois, then wouldn't the intersection be McGraw and Livernois. Now, I'm sure that the strip mall will be between McGraw and Warren on Livernois, but why couldn't J. Gallagher just say that.

Detroit is moving forward with new retail in its ghettohoods. Most people in Detroit don't want to drive 8 miles or more to suburbs looking for a mall, big box stores and other retail outlets.

This really is a sign of progress, especially if they do snag a T.J. Maxx, as the article suggests they might. Today, a T.J. Maxx on the SW side; tomorrow, a J.C. Penney at 8 and Woodward; in ten years, a Bloomingdale's downtown! Okay, doubtful, but this still is another relative triumph for the city proper and a sign of more good things to come.

Well duh Charlottepaul! That was a poor attempt at a joke.
No one's stupid.
