Downtown Detroit Days and Somerset’s CityLoft Bring Shopping to Woodward Avenue

Downtown Detroit Days & CityLoft - Quicken Loans Zing Blog I told you this was going to be a big week in Detroit, and I wasn’t kidding!

CityLoft and Downtown Detroit Days are giving locals a taste of what downtown retail could be like in the future.

Yesterday morning, I took my camera out for a cruise as 200 Quicken Loans interns released 500 eco-friendly balloons on the site of the old J.L. Hudson’s to kick start a weekend of shopping.

Sure, it was 98 degrees outside, but that didn’t stop shoppers from perusing the goods in the red, white and blue tents and crossing the street to visit the 6,000 square foot CityLoft space filled with Somerset style.

I headed for the tents first and found vendors selling Detroit-themed t-shirts, handmade purses, art made from reclaimed and antique objects, artistic tables, glassware and more. A DJ was spinning old-school beats from Motown to modern-day favorites, making the experience just a little more reminiscent of the old Downtown Detroit Days.

I made my way to CityLoft, where the old Woolworths site was transformed into a modern “loft” filled with goods from Henri Bendel, Brooks Brothers, Pottery Barn, Lilly Pulitzer and more. You can even visit the “dry bar” to get your hair washed and dried by professional stylists while a DJ spins jams from the mezzanine above.

The three-day shopping event takes place from 11 a.m.- 7 p.m. through Saturday and features 40 stores from the Somerset Collection in Troy plus 35 clothing and art vendors from around southeast Michigan.So bring your friends and head over to CityLoft at 1261 Woodward and stop by the artistic tents across the street at Downtown Detroit Days. Don’t forget, CityLoft stores are giving a gift with purchase and a $10 gift card for every $100 spent.

Have you checked out all this excitement? What was your favorite part?

If you can’t make it, the fun happens all over again July 26-28.
