Join us in the parlor with Detroit lover & retail maven Rachel Lutz, owner of The Peacock Room and Frida, to take stock of the state of retail in the city. In an era of mall closings and online shopping, Lutz is expanding -- with her newest shop Yama and a second Peacock Room opening in the Fisher Building this fall.
So let's get her take: Why is she so bullish on indie retail in the city? How can local merchants & customers work together to build a stronger local economy? Are there barriers for women and entrepreneurs of color? How is Detroit doing in the service & hospitality department?
