And that's new's? Or is it news that there are still any local businesses left in Middlefield?

We've lost:

The beverage store
H&H Hardware
Middlefield Hardware
Petal Pushers
The Hot Dog Shop(s)
and a host of others...

Granted, some of them left due to their own management, but others were due to a lack of support from the locals.

Who's next? The newest hardware store? The mini-mart? The Good News?

Support the locals, or there won't be anything to support.

Not the Good News!!!! I love that paper. That thing has been around forever so I don't think that will go but I agree with your concern about people not shopping locally.

The businesses in "downtown" Middlefield are effected because what little local shoppers there are seem to be focused on going to the plaza's and Walmart west of town. There are some great local shops that way as well like Radioactive, The Flooring Place, Dry Cleaners and the like but a lot of big chain stores that have set up shop in the last 10 years or so. Harrington Plaza does offer some local owners though.

Downtown offers
Fig Tree which now has a deli
Maggie's Donuts
Convenient stores
Music Shop
Costume Shop
Geauga Vision
Geaua Tourism Council...

You get the idea. A LOT of good businesses. Support them or your choices will diminish and your option will be "The Big Gorilla" Walmart.

Take care of the local owners...:)
