August 22, 2022 [DETROIT] - McMullen, an all-inclusive specialty retailer for luxury fashion, accessories and home décor, in partnership with Bedrock, a real estate developer managing more than 100 properties in Detroit and Cleveland, is set to open a six-month pop-up shop in downtown Detroit. The grand opening is slated for Friday, September 16 at 1419 Woodward Avenue along the Woodward retail corridor.
Founded by Sherri McMullen in 2007, the eponymous retailer features a curated selection of apparel, accessories and home décor with emerging and established designers from around the globe. The McMullen brand’s commitment to female empowerment and support of African and African American designers will be showcased at the downtown Detroit boutique.
“McMullen is excited to open a pop up in Detroit, a city much like Oakland, with a rich history and culture, and generally underrepresented in the fashion industry,” said Sherri McMullen. “We look forward to tapping into the city's arts, entertainment and food scene, and engaging in meaningful conversations with the Detroit community both through our unique assortment of up-and-coming designers and also through facilitating connections and knowledge sharing.”
McMullen will open across from the Shinola Hotel and joins GUCCI, Bonobos, Warby Parker, Lululemon, Nike and H&M, in addition to Detroit favorites such as Good Neighbor, The Lip Bar, Greyson Clothiers and House of Pure Vin.
“Sherri McMullen is a fashion pioneer, and we can’t wait to welcome this forward-thinking, women-owned concept to downtown Detroit,” said Ivy Greaner, COO, Bedrock. “This is such a pivotal time for retail in Detroit and McMullen not only brings a fresh designer offering, but they are also paving the way for up-and-coming brands to break through in the market.”
McMullen is excited to partner with organizations in Detroit that focus on Women, Children & Arts and is currently working to solidify those partnerships.
"I am so excited that McMullen has chosen to pop up in Detroit! Sherri McMullen is a retail maverick and a true merchant with an incredible eye for exciting, wearable fashion,” said Tracy Reese, native- Detroit fashion designer. “Detroiters have been starved for just this type of immersive retail experience. Everyone who loves fashion will be beating down her door!"
The Detroit shop will carry goods from designers such as Christopher John Rogers, Proenza Schouler, Rachel Comey, Peter Do, Aisling Camps, Tracy Reese, and Mara Hoffman.
In November, McMullen will be launching its 15-year anniversary collection which will feature exclusive pieces ranging from jewelry, beauty to apparel by 15 of our coveted designers. McMullen is also the exclusive US retailer of Nigeria-based brand, Lisa Folawiyo.
Wednesday - Saturday from 10a-6p
