Detroit-based Shinola, however, is on a mission to change that, and they’ve brought their watches, luxury leather goods and carefully crafted bicycles to Kansas City’s Country Club Plaza.

One of the coolest parts about the story? How they got to Kansas City. Hint: A legendary local retailer helped make it happen. Check out my story on ThisIsKC.com and when you’re in the midst of holiday shopping on the Plaza, don’t forget to stop by the Shinola boutique! When you do, be sure to give a little love to the sweetest and cutest shop dog ever: Lucy!
