Corktown's last handful of Michigan Avenue commercial spaces are filling up fast. The latest retailer to join the neighborhood is El Dorado, a "general store" planning to open this month 1700 Michigan Avenue. As reported by Model D, the store will offer "vintage men's and women's clothing, household items, trinkets, talismans, textiles, and jewelry, both vintage and handmade."
The use of "general store" might a modern/hipster interpretation, but the storefront El Dorardo leased is anything but cutting edge. A few steps from what used to be Tiger Stadium, the 114-year-old building has been dark for several years.
