The Somerset Collection in Troy, the most upscale mall in the state and one of the toniest in the nation, will bring mini versions of several of its stores — including Neiman Marcus, Michael Kors, Saks Fifth Avenue, Coach, Lego, the Gap and a Häagen-Dazs ice cream cart — to downtown Detroit later this month.
Called Somerset Collection CityLoft, the boutiques will be located in a 4,000-square-foot space on the first floor of Merchants Row on Woodward Avenue.
CityLoft will be open the last Thursday, Friday and Saturday of every month — beginning July 28 — through at least September.
Somerset plans to include food and music at the location in an effort to create a fun and vibrant monthly event that will "show Detroit that there is a retail future for the city," said Nate Forbes, managing partner for Southfield-based Forbes, which owns and manages Somerset.
"A stronger downtown is a stronger Detroit, is a stronger region, is a stronger Michigan," Forbes said.
