  1. Recognize the video below from the past few days? It was taken by John Karlovec, the editor at the Geauga County Maple Leaf. The Maple Leaf staff shared this video, and the original raw footage, with ABC World News, CNN and Fox News, among others. Another reason why the Maple Leaf is first in the WORLD in news that affects Geauga County residents.

  4. Chagrin Fall's Ohio, flash mob turns out to be cash mob, as 500+ turn out to help save an over 70 year owned family business. A local hardware store in financial crisis has neighbors running to their rescue, all because of one man sending a chain e-mail . Sometimes, you get a wonderful selfless gesture from the news that helps restore your faith in mankind.
  5. In Chagrin Falls Ohio a hardware store was the recipient of a CASH mob, the idea was for lots of people to spend money at a small business to help it increase it's cash flow. We won't complain if that would happen here:) Free t-shirt for the first 25 customers on Saturday the 28th of January. Mob away! Hope you have to wait in line!
  6. This what defines a community from just a place to live... we need to make the effort to know our neighbors, shop locally whenever we can and make time to be sure we live in a great community by our investment of time, talent and treasure. Good Job people of Chagrin!!!
  7. Someone in the town of Chagrin Falls, Ohio noticed the local mom and pop hardware store, which has been in business since 1857, had fallen on hard times. One person sent an e-mail to 40 friends asking them to spend $20 in the place last Saturday. The e-mail spread and the store had its best day in years! (Does a local business in your area deserve that kind of support?)
  8. What a great rally for a small-town hardware store! Social media can be amazing. Congrats and kudos to the people of Chagrin Falls and Chagrin Hardware.
