Thank you for considering a career at Five15 Media Mojo and More, the new independent book, record and gift store with a Left Bank feel. The store, located at Five15 Washington Street in downtown Royal Oak, is being launched in September and will disprove the much parroted line that indie bookstores are DOA in the 21st century. The address might say Washington Ave., but the vibe is more Greenwich Village or Haight‐Ashbury wired for today’s generation.

This store, the brainchild of Gary Baglio, will saturate itself in the liberating impulses of the ‘60s yet surround patrons with the innovations of our generation. Interesting things are happening in the arts and popular culture and the store will be a real counterculture of what’s happening in Detroit right now. Indeed, the store’s aesthetic reflects the owner’s sensibilities while its state of the art technologies are geared fortoday’s pulse.

“We will have the most eye‐popping, thought‐provoking, funny‐bone ticklin’ merchandise around‐ literature, music and giftsthat people don’tsee at Barnes & Noble and on,” Baglio said. “I personally feelthatDetroit has needed a place like thisfor a long time.”

The Detroit underground scene will be galvanized by this new indie store with avant‐garde roots. Does thisstore reflect yourthinking? Ifso, please fill out the attached application because we want to show you Five15’s potential in becoming the most exciting commercialspace in Metro Detroit – where a real scene can emerge and come together. With your help Five15 will work as a hub for artists, a creative clubhouse where people can see and feel our aesthetic. Please join us.
