Sunday is a day for relaxation, recuperation, and retailing. Check out this slideshow of some locally-owned, online-only retail businesses in metro Detroit. You'd be surprised at the number of Detroit-owned enterprises that don't have an actual brick-and-mortar storefront. Sometimes it's just cheaper and easier to do things digitally.

Here are just eight that are based in metro Detroit.
