Welcome New Ypsilanti Business

Comments (2) 9:00 AM posted by admin |

This announcement may be premature, but this is further proof that buildings don’t stay empty for long in Ypsilanti’s Depot Town.

Earlier this year Salt City Antiques moved to Michigan Avenue and Nelson Amos Studios moved into the old Gordon’s Five and Dime down the street, Ivan Harner’s building at 9-15 East Cross Street was empty. While it isn’t open for business yet, Stealth Hydroponics have their sign in the window and soon will be open, ready to supply you with all of your medicinal marijuana needs.

The face of Depot Town continues to change. I can now get my motorcycle fixed at Cafe Racer, pick up a dimebag at Stealth Hydro, rent a chicken costume at Fantasy Attic, and get a tattoo commemorating my experience at Depot Town Tattoo. And let’s face it, when it’s all over there are still great places like Aubrees, Cafe Luwak, and The Sidetrack to satisfy any munchies you may develop.

As we get closer to Christmas I would like to encourage people to shop local when buying gifts for loved ones, and I would hope that instead of people buying their weed from that guy who hangs out at the closed furniture place in the Township to consider buying their Christmas kush in Depot Town.

    I’m sure Stealth will appreciate your suggestion that they are selling “dime bags” as that would, if I understand the lingo correctly, be an illegal activity. Selling equipment to hydroponically grow plants, however, is perfectly legal. And lucrative, given Michigan’s new medical use law. Welcome tax payers!

    This news will undoubtedly make the former mayor Farmer happy.
