OPINION: Organic Bliss store will be greatly missed in downtown Ann Arbor
I am writing in response to the article about the Liberty Street shop, Organic Bliss, closing their doors, and specifically to the comments pertaining to the article.
I was stunned to find so many negative words about the store. Clearly the writers had never entered foot into the establishment. Organic Bliss was an amazing place. It was my first go to store for all my presents, and a place to treat myself to some wonderful products as well.
Melissa had a large variety of inventory ranging from baby clothes and necessities, adult clothes, bath products, and many other things, too numerous to name. Each item there was carefully chosen to be eco-friendly and organic as well as high quality. There was something there for everyone!
In addition, going to Organic Bliss was terrific not only for what was on the shelves, but for the warm and friendly service you received from the owner, Melissa. She was always there to help you select the perfect present. She greeted you each and every time with a smile, and always made you feel welcome.
Organic Bliss was a great asset to the downtown district. With few shops other than restaurants surrounding Main Street it was wonderful to be able to do some great shopping without venturing to the mall. It is so unfortunate Melissa is closing her doors, and what is even more unfortunate is the lack of compassion displayed in the comment section following the article.
Ann Arbor is losing a great store, and a great proprietor. Organic Bliss and Melissa, you will be sorely missed.
