Tuesday, December 8, 2020- [Detroit, Michigan]: Famed Avenue of Fashion clothing and streetwear boutique, Three Thirteen will be expanding its brand and opening a second location at 1436 Farmer St. in Parker’s Alley, within Bedrock’s portfolio in Downtown Detroit. The brand will join a growing shopping district downtown and a thriving community of neighboring small businesses as it plans an opening before the end of 2020.
“Three Thirteen, Detroit’s Brand Name Retail Store, is excited to join Parker’s Alley,” said Clement ‘Fame’ Brown, Founder, Three Thirteen. “Helping to bolster and participate in our City’s growth is particularly important to us and we are proud to be a part of Detroit’s newly emerging downtown landscape.”
The boutique shop will feature specialty branded Three Thirteen t-shirts, crewnecks, jackets, jerseys, hats and gifting items including coffee mugs, pins, candles and body spray. Products from other niche brands will be featured on a rotating basis. At the launch, local brands such as Detroit Hustles Harder, Naturally Flyy Detroit and The Detroit Fresh Shop will be presented alongside products from national brands including Pro Standard and Sprayground. New to this location, Brown plans on carrying exclusive one-of-a-kind products designed by himself.
A long-time Detroiter and entrepreneur, Brown began selling air-brushed t-shirts as early as 12 years old. Sticking to his craft, Brown founded the Three Thirteen brand in 2008 and began selling apparel through word of mouth, pop-ups and in select retailers. After opening his first shop in 2015, Brown moved Three Thirteen to the Livernois Avenue of Fashion in March of 2019. After five years of growth, Three Thirteen is ready to expand its brand and customer base to another unique retail setting.
“Clement embodies that entrepreneurial talent and drive that makes Detroit brands authentic. He has grown Three Thirteen into a household name in Detroit. It’s these unique brands that make the downtown shopping district a one-of-a-kind destination,” said Ivy Greaner, Chief Operating Officer, Bedrock. “We are honored to be working together to expand the Three Thirteen brand and create a retail experience for all to enjoy.”
Parker’s Alley, located behind the Shinola Hotel, was designed with the goal of attracting small businesses to a downtown setting. Three Thirteen’s neighboring small businesses include The Lip Bar, Flowers for Dreams, DROUGHT, Good Neighbor, Huddle and Madcap Coffee.
