Dollar Castle's shelves brim with everyday necessities such as groceries and home goods stocked alongside toys, party supplies, gift packaging, and seasonal decorations. Shoppers can prepare for the holiday season with gift boxes and Christmas decorations primed to turn any home into an exact replica of Santa's igloo. Party supplies such as dinnerware, table covers, and paper products help to host extra guests, while storage containers are ready to stash away leftovers or the especially good pie that never got served.

The Contempo Inferno wine ($19.99 each), brought to fruity fruition by Burford Family Wines, is a red wine of rich and robust flavor. Feather-soft hints of dark chocolate, black raspberry, and smoked cedar tinge the wine's bouquet, while a succulent swig from the 750 ml. bottle reveals the taste of berry cobbler, cappuccino, chocolate-covered cherries, and fig cake with rich tannins. The finish reveals perennial campfire favorites toasted marshmallow and dried dark fruit. As with many heartier reds, Contempo Inferno is best paired with whatever red meat you've bow-hunted down in your own backyard.
Stacked with Sy Ginsberg meats and served with homemade kettle chips, Front Page Deli's lineup of 22 newspaper-themed sandwiches cures both lunch and dinner cravings. The Headliner ($5.99 for a half, $7.99 for a regular) slips corned beef and swiss cheese onto mustard-slathered halves of an onion roll, and rye bread cushions the Authority's layers of hot brisket roast beef, coleslaw, and russian dressing. Diners can satiate freshwater appetites or pet orcas weaned on people food with the Weekend sandwich, which tops deep-fried cod and tartar sauce with lettuce, tomato, and american cheese. Patrons can plunge forks into eight specialty salads ($6.99 for a small, $8.99 for a large) such as the caesar and Baby Blue, or gussy up all-beef hot dogs with chili cheese, onions, and mustard ($3.49). Burgers ($4.99–$7.99) marshal an entourage of steak fries, and glass bottles of Michigan-made sodas ($1.98) drain swiftly for onsite speed rounds of model-ship building.
For more than 65 years, Wesley Berry Flowers has bestowed beautiful bouquets upon local and long-distance clients. Four brick-and-mortar locations stand teeming with fresh floral formations such as bright yellow and white daisies ($26.99), which arrive bursting out of a glass bubble bowl, or a Hooray for Birthday mug ($39.99), which toasts birthday boys and girls with a decorated coffee mug packed with red, yellow, and purple flowers and a Happy Birthday balloon. Gift givers can charm friends and compel grizzled whaling-boat captains to reveal their sentimental sides with distinctive tokens that include the happy gaze of the Teleflora Party Bear ($39.99) and the luxurious rain-scented bath oils and salts of the Anti-Stress bath set ($34.99), bundled inside a blue woven basket. For wishful wooers, a dozen of Wesley Berry's fresh roses can be snagged in a spectrum of romantic hues, perfect for romancing a beloved or providing him or her with a pleasant-smelling set of thorny backscratchers.
The florists at Terry’s Enchanted Garden have created bouquets for Ford Motor Company, the MGM Grand Casino, and Detroit’s mayor. Despite their glamorous rolodex, however, they craft arrangements just as thoughtfully for their everyday customers. The veteran designers specialize in tropical arrangements, which they create from antheriums, orchids, and birds of paradise, rather than collapsed beach umbrellas. They can also construct custom floral creations for special occasions that range from birthday parties to monster-truck rallies, or recreate an array of stylish stock bouquets. For chic wares to complement their arrangements, clients can browse the shop’s boutique, which is stocked with a carefully curated selection of apparel, limited-edition art, and gift baskets packed with gourmet chocolate and snacks.
