Local Youth Have Opportunity To Gain Valuable Business Know-How

7 Jun , 2022  

Special to 1812Blockhouse

The North End Community Improvement Collaborative (NECIC) along with the Regional Manufacturing Coalition (RMC) and EPIK are excited to host students from 4+ schools in Richland County entering 5th through 8th grade participating in the 5th Annual Summer Manufacturing Institute Camp, a part of Senator Sherrod Brown’s call to engage Ohio’s youth with local manufacturing activities and opportunities in their home county. The camp will take place at NECIC’s Community Outreach Center in Mansfield from July 18th through the 22nd.

This year the camp will focus on local supply chains and how they have been affected by the pandemic and the current economy. Tyler Shinaberry of EPIK explained, “For the past couple years students have emphasized their interest in ‘economics.’ This has always tied in with our connection to banking/financial literacy both as employees and enterprises. With the current shortages we are facing and the situation during COVID-19, youth have intimately witnessed things typically only faced by adults. Our hope is to provide answers to difficult questions while showing first hand the chain reaction(s) faced in manufacturing.”


Students will tour local businesses and complete some hands-on projects. Shinaberry said, with this year’s focus on the supply chain, it’s going to be a little different than in previous years. “This year we are opening new channels to showcase the end sellers of manufacturing as part of tying in the supply chain. Basically, how manufacturing becomes the products we purchase in stores.”

This camp is open to Richland County resident students and is free to participants thanks to generous host and manufacturer contributions. There are currently a few spaces still available for students. Registration can be done online at https://www.necic-ohio.org/surveys/summer-manufacturing-institute-camp-2022. For questions about registration and the camp, please contact Nyasha Oden at 419-522-1611 ext. 122 or [email protected].

Cities And Villages With The Fastest Growing Home Prices In The Mansfield Area

28 May , 2022  

Special to 1812Blockhouse

It goes without saying that the coronavirus pandemic has sparked a wave of uncertainty across myriad industries, and not other market has quite felt its impact like that of real estate.

The pandemic has become a driving force behind the continued real estate boom, with high demand for vacation homes and a limited supply of housing that has prompted buyers and investors to bid up prices for affordable properties, causing home prices to skyrocket. The ability to work remotely played a role in the vacation home demand in mid-2020, as affluent Americans opted to ride out the pandemic with more amenities and space outside dense urban areas.

Old Navy Opens In New Location

24 May , 2022  

By 1812Blockhouse

If you head for a shopping trip to Old Navy on Fourth Street in Ontario, you will soon find out that you are going to need to head a bit further north.

The relocated store, now at 2259 Walker Lake Road, opened with a ribbon cutting this past Saturday. It occupies the site of the former Bed, Bath & Beyond not far from Target.

The Bed, Bath & Beyond store closed several weeks ago as part of a 37 store, 19 state closing strategy. As it turns out, this shift – a new Old Navy moving to one of these closed locations – is not unusual; a similar relocation recently took place in Dayville, Connecticut.

Old Navy operates 1,106 stores from its San Francisco headquarters. A division of The Gap, Inc., its West Fourth Street location in Ontario opened on April 19, 2000, just six years after the chain was established.
