Lamar and Tarana Hayes
Lamar and Tarana’s love story is living proof that your soul mate might be right there in your DMs.
In the back of Gourmet Food Center, it’s quiet. Soothingly quiet. On the outside of the store, located at the corner of Plymouth and Greenfield roads, people are in and out of the gas station on one side and an outlet of Hot Wheel City, the flashy rims store better known for its more luminous display on West Eight Mile, on the other side. If not for GPS, a first-time visitor can easily pass it before arriving. Once you’re inside, outside noise dissipates.
At The Neighborhoods, we’re interested in hearing from everybody in Detroit about what matters most to you.
