Gucci sets up shop in Detroit

Mr. Nag grew up in Windsor,Ontario, a short hop across the river from Detroit  during its glory days. My son and his wife made their home there after it suffered the largest municipal bankruptcy in U.S. history. We are all happy to see the city experiencing a tentative revival. Recently high-end Italian designer Gucci opened a permanent 3,500 sq ft store in the city’s downtown in the LB King Building, a 1911 office building designed by architects Rogers and MacFarlane for a china and glassware firm in Renaissance Revival style. It's gorgeous.
