Dale Carnegie Training of Michigan truly appreciates our local business community. Here are the business briefs that are creating local buzz here in Southeast Michigan.
- Detroit’s oldest community adjacent to the classic corner of Michigan and Trumbull has seen an exciting resurgence along Michigan Avenue. In the past year and a half; restaurants, a coffee shop and a bar have opened. “People thought Corktown would die after Tiger Stadium left,” said Dennis Fulton, co-owner of the Mercury Burger and Bar, which opened in March at the corner of Michigan and 14th Street. “It’s been quite the opposite. There’s a real young, hip crowd moving in creating a great mix of the old and new.” From The Detroit News: http://www.detroitnews.com/article/20120716/BIZ/207160323#ixzz210QHF7gW
