DETROIT (AP) - Rocker Jack White has opened a Third Man Records store in his hometown, the Motor City.

The Grammy-nominated White - the singer, guitarist, drummer and producer who rose to acclaim in the duo The White Stripes - was on hand Friday for the satellite location's grand opening just north of downtown Detroit. Hundreds flocked to the store, which next year plans to launch a vinyl record pressing plant.

The shop opened with vinyl reissues from Tamla Records, including releases by Marvin Gaye, the Supremes and Miracles.

White founded Third Man in Detroit in 2001. He left Detroit for Nashville, Tennessee, where Third Man is based.

White and Shinola, a Detroit-based business that makes watches and other goods, jointly announced plans in June to buy the building housing Shinola.
