Bay Design is Closing
Susan Bay makes Florida her priority
by John Hilton
In June, Susan Bay announced the closing of Bay Design Store, her elegant furniture-and-accessories showroom at the Detroit-Division fork. Bay says she's sold the distinctive, triangular building to Michael Yi in order to concentrate on her store in Naples, Florida. "We're expanding and growing there," she says, "and it's become increasingly apparent that I need to spend most, if not all, of my time there."
A closing sale, already underway, will continue into October. Yi is seeking a tenant for the space.
Bay Design Store, 617 Detroit, 996-0707. Mon.-Sat. 10 a.m.-7 p.m., Sun. noon-6 p.m.
