Most of Merit's shirts, hats, wooden-bead bracelets, and notebooks carry the Merit logo patch, which Merritt hopes will become recognized as a "positive messaging" brand. He's also experimenting with a few "cut-and-sew" (trade lingo for original design) men's shirts that don't sport the Merit badge: a long-sleeve, collared Henley for $75, a color-blocked hoodie for $85.

Merritt also works for Straight Gate International, his father's nondenominational ministry in Detroit. "Between the store and working with my father," he says, "I don't have time for basketball anymore."

Merit, 1113 South University, 585-0137. Mon., Wed., Fri. & Sat. noon-8 p.m. Closed Tues., Thurs., & Sun. meritgoodness.com    (end of article)
