Detroit will be one of 13 U.S. cities with a “Pablo” store, along with Atlanta, Las Vegas, Chicago, Philadelphia and others. Earlier this year, West moved a reported $1,000,000 worth of merchandise at a pop-up in New York, according to

West is not expected to appear at the Detroit store, but he will be in town when he performs Sept. 28 at Joe Louis Arena and Oct. 6 at The Palace of Auburn Hills. Merch lines at those shows will likely be shorter than they will be at the “Pablo” store this weekend.
