This is the satellite store of the famous 4-story store (c. 1 million books...) housed in a former glove factory in Detroit near the Lodge Freeway (and just a few blocks from one of Detroit's casinos, the MGM Grand). The website is the same for both stores, although the photo on the website is of the original store on Lafayette Blvd in Detroit, not of the single-story (though sizable) store in Ferndale, a suburb on the northern border of Detroit (Ferndale's southern border is Eight Mile Rd, a street made famous by Emimem).

Though not nearly as large as the JKK store on Lafayette, the Ferndale location has a sizable collection of books & things to check out. There is street parking, and the staff is friendly and helpful.
