Carhartt Launches Pop-up Store in Detroit’s Midtown
Residents of Detroit in search of high-quality work clothing now have an additional retail option available within the city. Carhartt has recently opened a temporary store located adjacent to Shinola in Detroit’s Midtown. Located at 441 W. Canfield, this store will remain operational throughout the holiday season, placed between Shinola and Third Man Records. Carhartt, a clothing retailer based in Dearborn, already operates its flagship store nearby on Cass Avenue, which was established in 2015.
“With the road construction projects taking place near the Carhartt flagship store on Cass Avenue, we wanted to provide another access point for our customers, especially as we approach the holiday season,” Chad Cornstubble, the senior vice president of direct-to-consumer at Carhartt, said in a press release. “Canfield Street is an ideal location for the pop-up — at the center of a historic, bustling district and surrounded by some of the city’s best retail shops and restaurants — a perfect location for the hardworking people of Detroit to find the gear they need to create their own histories, both on and off the job.”
Outerwear, footwear, accessories, and holiday stocking fillers
Covering an area of approximately 3,100 square feet across two stories, the store will present a variety of Carhartt’s well-known styles. This offering includes outerwear, footwear, accessories, and holiday stocking fillers.
The pop-up shop will observe the following hours: 10 a.m. – 6 p.m. from Monday to Saturday and 11 a.m. – 5 p.m. on Sundays. Additionally, the operating hours for the flagship location at 5800 Cass Ave. will remain consistent: 10 a.m. – 7 p.m. on Monday-Saturday and 11 a.m. – 5 p.m. on Sundays.
Detroit has been the home of Carhartt for more than 130 years. The company, Hamilton Carhartt & Company, was founded by its namesake, known as “Ham,” and began producing overalls in a small Detroit loft with just two sewing machines and a half-horsepower electric motor. According to the company’s website, early challenges prompted Hamilton to focus on market research. After direct conversations with railroad workers, he developed a product that genuinely met their needs. This led to the creation of the Carhartt bib overall, which quickly became the standard for high-quality workwear under the motto “Honest value for an honest dollar.”
