Map: The Geography of Home Improvement 2023

In the spirit of the new year, I’ve mapped out locations where you can purchase home improvement supplies. It is important to note that there are very few national retailers located in Detroit, so as with many retail categories, home improvement and hardware options are very local and many have been around for decades. There is only one national hardware retailer, Home Depot, on W. 7 Mile Road and Meyers. Detroit housing has many quirks and specific needs as well, so you can find a number of specialty plumbers for those odd shaped fittings and more.

Plumbing retailers are somewhat distributed across the city, but paint specific stores are only in a few areas while general hardware stores exist in every corner of the city.
