More Gratitude – A Good Mix
by E. G. Penet

In my last blog, I gave thanks to our new neighbors and customers in Ann Arbor. But the truly remarkable thing is how we have continued to thrive in Ypsilanti – to be beginning our seventh year in business at 128/130 West Michigan in the historic Hewitt Hall!

In great part, our success is due to the successes in downtown Ypsilanti with new business growth, especially entertainment, but also retail. Thanks to our Ypsilanti/Ann Arbor CVB for their promotional support with tie-ins to Pure Michigan and the launch of the new Ypsi Real campaign. Thanks, as well, to continued work by the D.A.Y. (Downtown Association of Ypsilanti).

As for changes in 2015, they’ve been both sad and happy. While the Lelands moved to Florida to launch their own new business in the Florida Keys, Mix recruited a new partner, Theresa Salah, with over 20 years of retail experience. We also lost our theater company, Emergent Arts, which relocated to The Yellow Barn in Ann Arbor. BUT! We gained a new and exciting venture calling itself Y.E.S. – the Ypsilanti Experimental Space, which holds promise for entirely new forms of entertainment experiences for Ypsilanti.

Of course, we confess we’ve tidied up, painting the 128/130 windows white and added LED lighting throughout the store, while we retained a couple of our iconic Mix red walls. The white windows and walls in 128 are to highlight our new interior art gallery space in 128 and will feature a new fine artist from our area each on the Frist Friday of every month from 6pm-9pm with a champagne opening reception and a store-wide sale. In addition, we have made a firm recommitment to Gently Used sales featuring fine fashions and the basics that are most reasonably priced. And there’s always our freshened sale racks to underscore value at Mix.

Keep an eye out for exciting product news and happenings in your Mix email. (To register for our emails, just drop by or call with your name and email address.) If you are already a customer and you’re getting our emails … thank you. Come in real soon.


A new artist reception is scheduled for the First Friday of each month.
