Moosejaw Opening Detroit Store Downtown For 2012 Holiday Shopping Season

Camping, hiking, skiing and even rock climbing enthusiasts might be surprised they can find what they're looking for in downtown Detroit. Beginning Thursday and lasting through Dec. 22, outdoors and sporting goods shop Moosejaw will open a holiday pop-up on Woodward Avenue between Grand River Avenue and State Street.

Moosejaw's Detroit shop will be open 12 p.m. to 9 p.m. Thursdays through Saturdays. They'll celebrate the opening this weekend, with giveaways of limited edition Moosejaw Detroit items, Atwater beer and foosball from 4 to 9 p.m. on Friday and Saturday.

The foosball isn't just a party trick, however. It will stay in the shop, matching the decor of the disco-themed dressing room.

Moosejaw Vice President of Retail Bryan Lively linked their pop-up to the larger Detroit retail scene. Dan Gilbert's Bedrock Real Estate Services was responsible for the lease, just one of the constant trickle of businesses they've brought downtown.

"Distinctive retail is necessary to create a thriving urban core," Lively said in a statement. "So we’re happy to bring the Moosejaw brand to Detroit to help the city’s resurgence."

Started in Michigan before expanding to several locations across the country, Moosejaw has four stores in the metro area, as well as shops in Ann Arbor and East Lansing.

Out in New York, camping looks a little different than what Moosejaw will outfit you for. Click through the slideshow to see yurts, safari tents, cabins, and chalets ready to provide a barrier from Mother Nature.
