While the Tortoise and Hare inventory was taking bounding strides out to Plymouth Road, Sole Sisters' inventory of girl shoes was taking smaller steps just around the corner into the old Tortoise and Hare space. Sole Sisters is a loose confederation of Detroit area shoe stores. The Ann Arbor outpost is owned by Tamar Fowler, and her idea when she came to town in the summer of 2008 was to bring a younger, hipper, more urban vibe to town.

Fowler says she'll open on Liberty "probably around the end of February, as soon as I do some painting and remodeling." A nervous neophyte when she opened Sole Sisters on South Fourth, Fowler is now such a self-assured retailer that in early February she hadn't even signed the lease for the Tortoise and Hare space yet. "Oh, we're still working out a few details," she says carelessly. The new store will be slightly larger--1,100 square feet compared to 800. "We'll be able to have a little more women's apparel--more scarves, hats, gloves--but no big changes. And we're keeping our yellow, black, and white color scheme."
