Carhartt opened a new retail location Thursday in Midtown Detroit, the brand’s founding location. The store is located on Cass Avenue, in the former home of Cass Motor Sales and is listed on the National Register of Historic Places.
The Carhartt store occupies the first floor of the three-story, 51,000-square-foot building, constructed by famous local architect Charles Agree in 1928. The store stocks more than 540 of the most popular styles of men’s, women’s and kids’ apparel, footwear and accessories.
Mark Valade, Carhartt CEO and chairman of the board, said, “Today is a remarkable day in Carhartt’s history as we celebrate the opening of our flagship store in Detroit where we were established 126 years ago.” He added, “We are proud to be a part of such a hard-working, industrious community.”
The Detroit store is the 20th company-owned store, alongside locations based in Connecticut, Illinois, Indiana, Maine, Massachusetts, Minnesota, New York, Ohio, Oregon, Pennsylvania, Utah, Virginia, Washington and Wisconsin.
