The John Varvatos store opened its doors to the public on Friday, March 13.
Varvatos grew up in Allen Park and went to Eastern Michigan University. He talked about his Michigan roots with Amy Andrews on The Nine.
This is Varvatos' 21st store globally, but his first in the Midwest. He says he hopes the store ignites and entices other retailers to open up shop in downtown Detroit.
The store is located at 1500 Woodward Avenue.
