Bloom! Blooms and more
The Life Is Good shop in downtown Dexter closed in early May. Owner Lisa Zahra opened in 2002, selling the trademarked message T-shirts and other merchandise featuring stick-figure primitives (hers is one of 4,500 "Genuine Neighborhood Shoppes" that are neither franchises nor company stores but independent businesses that agree to dedicate themselves to Life is Good products.) Life has been good in Dexter, Zahra says--and she is hoping it will get even better in early 2014, when she plans to reopen the store on Ann Arbor's Main Street.
