This one goes out to those of you with grand ideas and deep pockets: with the number of destination shopping and dining options on the rise in Over-the-Rhine, can you shift your focus to include the more mundane, low-order needs of the residents? How about turning this storefront, which once housed Bang’s Mkt., back into a corner store?
I know this is an unpopular opinion because it seems as though every corner store closure is treated like a victory. Forgive me for having to continually bring unSexyBack with this topic, and let me assure you that there is money to be made on the poor saps who run out of toilet paper at odd hours, or have the occasional lozenge emergency.
If my Walk Score [still an astounding 98!] were up-to-the-minute and actually accurate, I wonder if it would be affected by the recent closures and openings in OTR. Fewer corner stores, more gastropubs — maybe it all comes out in the wash.
