The Russell Bazaar is located in the historic Russell Industrial Center, seven interconnected buildings designed by Albert Kahn and finished in 1925 on a 25-acre site near I-75 and I-94 in Detroit (exit 54 off of I-75). Kefellinos purchased the Center in 2003 to create a community for small companies in creative industries. At the same time he saw an opportunity to build a unique shopping and entertainment destination for families that captures the unique creative and industrial spirit of Detroit and gives it a festive, international flair.
The Russell Bazaar is based on street markets found all over the world, except the Russell Bazaar is under one roof. It provides a terrific experience for shoppers and gives local artists, craftspeople, and many other types of small businesses a low-cost “storefront” in a lively environment. It’s generating excitement, jobs and economic opportunity at the same time.
At the Russell Bazaar you’ll find more than 150 specialty shops offering unique designerwear, jewelry, hand-made arts and crafts, housewares, food, gifts, bath, and beauty products all under one roof. Enjoy entertainment and giveaways too. Visit the Russell Bazaar at the Russell Industrial Center today.
