Retail ... or the lack thereof

The Detroit News focuses on the potential for the proposed Cadillac Centre to bring new retail to Downtown.

Presently, Detroit has virtually no major national retailers. The only big-box store in the city's 143 square miles is a Home Depot on Seven Mile. There are only two multi-screen theaters. With the close of Farmer Jack, there is not a single national grocer. The city is home to dozens of wonderful small businesses, but the lack of national retailers is nevertheless appalling.
