A 1940 Post Office on Detroit’s east side will soon open as a flagship retail store for a local design firm. POST opens its doors October 11. Mutual Adoration, a Detroit-based design firm specializing in furniture and housewares made of reclaimed wood, plans to turn the location into a gathering spot for the community, with retail, classes, workshops, special events, and tours of the workspaces of some of Detroit’s creative companies.
The company, led by Clare Fox and Wayne Maki, moved its production facility into the building in April 2017. Jefferson East Inc. helped them find the space, and a Motor City Match award helped them open the doors to the 10,000-square-foot facility.
The shop will carry Mutual Adoration’s line of products, as well as a selection of gifts, jewelry, home goods, and American-made products from small, independent studios. They’ll also carry a variety of women-owned brands like Abigail Murray ceramics, feminist printmakers Marcy Davy and Vichcraft, and local small craft artisans like Cellar Door Soaps and JKM soy candles.
“We’re very excited to open our new store and become even more engaged in the community. POST will be Detroit’s destination to buy a handmade gift, design a custom dining table, or get your holiday shopping done.” said Clare Fox, co-owner at Mutual Adoration and POST.
The store will be open Wednesday-Saturday, 12 p.m. to 7 p.m. beginning on October 11. A grand opening party is scheduled for October 21. The store is located at 14500 Kercheval.
