In further Liberty Street news, Harry’s Army Surplus, which has been in Ann Arbor for 30 years and on Liberty for 15, has stated that it will not renew its lease on the Liberty Street storefront, which expires April 1. From the Ann Arbor News:
“We have a store that is doing really good in Dearborn and probably we will open another store in the Detroit area,” [operations manager Rob] Davis said. “That store (on Liberty) used to be a great store. Then all of a sudden people stopped shopping.”
Meanwhile, Business Direct Weekly reports that the National City Bank site, Tally Hall, has been purchased; currently most of the space is leased by Borders, but that lease expires this year. The buyer has stated that short term uses may include leasing space to the city while it looks for long-term solutions to crowding at City Hall, or to University departments displaced from Frieze until new space is found. The buyer also mentions the possibility of adding up to three stories to the single-story portion of the building in the long term.
