As we approach Small Business Saturday, the mayor of Detroit is working to steer shoppers to local owners who stuck it out in the city and continue to thrive.
Mayor Mike Duggan is joining the Michigan Black Chamber of Commerce and small business owners to unveil the new "Detroit Neighborhood Business Directory."
It includes more than 170 businesses including shops, boutiques, and services centers.
He kicked off the initiative at the new location of Mo Better Blues, the jazzy bistro which is now on Larned.
The neighborhood directory is free online: www.dreamitdoitdetroit.org
