The "Shop Detroit" message is being echoed by the city, the local
NAACP, Independent Retailers Association, Booker T. Washington Business
Association, Detroit Black Chamber of Commerce and Detroit Synergy.
On Saturday, Dec. 2, Synergy will host its third Shop Detroit event
from 10 am to 5 pm. Shoppers who register with Synergy at the Compuware
building will get info on discounts and promotions around the city, a
free People Mover pass for the day and a free shuttle to the New Center
for a map and more details on the Synergy event Saturday.
In addition, this year the city is offering another incentive:
discounted parking at city municipal parking structures and lots from
through Dec. 24 for shoppers with receipts.
The city also has a list of boutiques, specialty shops and retailers in the city at its web site: www.ci.detroit.mi.us/default.htm
