With loud chants of “Open up now!”, Buckeye-Shaker Square residents held a rally Tuesday, May 11 calling for the reopening of their local post office branch, which closed suddenly following a robbery six months ago and has not reopened since then.
“My goal is to take something that’s been neglected, overlooked, underserviced, and make it great,” said Ibis Development CEO Adam Lubkin of the newly renovated Buckeye Plaza, which he’s renamed The Shoppes of Buckeye. “When I do that, I’ve noticed that the area around it improves.”
Tonya Griffith Bullard started selling food this year in a parking lot on Buckeye Road to raise money to help fix up her mother’s home, damaged by fire. Now she and her husband, Marvin Bullard, plan to open a takeout restaurant there.
