MIX...what a wonderful name for a shop that is indeed a "mix" of fashion, jewelry and accessories for the woman who wants a style all her own.  Owners Bonnie and Ed and their staff know how to personalize a look for each customer. After many successful years in Downtown Ypsilanti, they opened another MIX in the Nichols Arcade in Ann Arbor to serve their growing customer base.

Here is what one satisfied customer had to say:

"What a wonderful surprise! In the heart of Ypsilanti, a warm atmosphere with cool clothes. Mix carries clothing lines I have only found in other cities (Comfy, Match Point). Great fabrics, wearable by all ages and shapes" EG

MIX Ypsilanti hosts month-long art exhibits featuring local talent, with receptions on the First Friday of each month

When the Ypsilanti Running Company (YRC) opened in Downtown Ypsilanti a few years ago, owner Mike Nix had a vision for a community-based run specialty store.

Today the Ypsilanti Running Company provides the community with a personalized running and fitness center providing quality fitness advice, training, and products that help them break down ​fitness barriers and discover their inner athlete. The store calendar shows the schedule of events from Saturday AM runs, to women's marathon training to yoga. It has become a destination for runners in the Ann Arbor-Ypsilanti area. 

Oh yes, it is also  store where you will find the best running shoes, accessories and equipment for your needs. Mike and his staff are the experts and are always willing to go the extra mile for you. Stop in and see for yourself.

This is what one happy runner reported:
