Best New Independent Store in Detroit 

Shinola; 441 W. Canfield, Detroit; 313-285-2390;

Tapping into the sort of old-timey retromania sweeping pop culture as of late (the company takes its name from an old shoe polish brand), Shinola opened its doors last year as a purveyor of watches, bicycles and leather goods manufactured (well, at least assembled) right here in Detroit. Sure, its wares come with a higher price tag — anyone in the market for a $3,000 bike? — but part of that cost is buying that warm, fuzzy feeling you get for helping a great American city. At any rate, Shinola seems determined to make Detroit its home, recently installing four street clocks around town.

(Sorry, no information is currently available for other years in this same award category.)
