Brunswick Buehler's closing October 21
Family-owned Buehler Food Markets Inc. announced it will
close its nine-year-old Brunswick store at 3688 Center Road, on Friday,
Oct. 21. It's a move that will cut about 125 full-time, part-time and
Buehler's said it made "the painful decision to close" its
77,000-square-foot Brunswick store after evaluating its 14-store
portfolio and its lease options. "As the company continued to add
stores, remodel and refresh their current base of stores, they had some
hard decisions with respect to underperforming stores," the company said
in a statement.
Buehler's Chicago-based landlord at Brunswick Market Center
Plaza told the grocer that "'We are working with a third party on a
deal' and asked if we would consider leaving before our lease expired in
mid-2018," said Buehler's spokeswoman Deb Wilcox.

Main Street's Beer Fest Oct. 8.
"Medina really has this picturesque, small-town feel and as
I've come to find out, it has previously been tagged as 'America's
hometown.' I really got that sense right away," he said.

Brunswick Hills Police to hold levy meetings
Targeted community meetings are being held in support of a
Brunswick Hills Township police levy that
Chief Tim Sopkovich has said is needed to stave off
further personnel cuts.
Similar levies have failed twice within the past year.
Township residents will receive a flier at their home from a
Police Department-led committee, which organized meeting dates for
residents in "zones" of the community to provide information about the
proposed five-year, 2.5-mill levy on the Nov. 8 ballot.
"Residents are broken up to have their own specific
meetings," police department secretary Ellen Young said.
"We're trying to find the best way to get information out to
Township leaders have been told if the levy doesn't pass,
cuts will be necessary.
"The department is in a position where there is a need to
increase the staffing and services to the community to meet these
demands," Sopkovich said.
