Consignment resale store, Boro, will open along the Gratiot Avenue commercial district near the intersection of Russell Street in May. Boro will consign higher-end independent, designer, and vintage clothing of all styles.
“The focus of Boro is to keep using perfectly usable clothing, which reduces our environmental impact, promotes quality labels, and helps people earn additional income. Each piece of clothing has a story. By continuing that story, we build relationships between buyers and sellers,” says Miriam Pranschke, Boro’s owner.
In preparation for launching Boro’s brick-and-mortar location, Pranschke has been curating and selling a collection of local and international used clothing, accessories, and shoes since 2010.
When Boro sells an item, the consignor will earn 40 percent of the selling price. In turn, Boro will offer consigners the option of donating a percentage of their earnings to its charity program, which will distribute donations to organizations supporting equity and mobility within the Detroit community.
The clothing store will join new and existing businesses surrounding Eastern Market including Detroit Hustles Harder, SMPLFD, and Inner State Gallery on the 1400 block of Gratiot.
