Cincinnati turning former grocery store into manufacturing, product innovation and training hub

What’s a good use for a former big box grocery store? The folks in Cincinnati have decided to turn a former Kroger facility into something called CoMade Cincinnati. It’s described as “a Cincinnati hub for manufacturing, product innovation and job training.” The first effort is a community tool library through which local residents and organizations can rent tools and receive training to undertake personal or community projects. Soon after, affordable shared desk and studio space will be available followed by training workshops.
