New Menards location to be developed in Ohio
Menards plans to open a new location in Miami Township, Ohio, on Springboro Pike, according to a report in the Dayton Business Journal. The store will take the place of an existing plaza, the Lyons Crossing shopping center, which will be demolished to make room for the approximately $9 million project.
Discussions on July 26 to consider an agreement with Menards followed a Miami Township Trustee meeting on July 12, at which the trustees determined to remove the existing plaza from the Dayton Mall’s tax increment financing district.
Greg Hanahan, the township administrator, told the Journal that after the developer has had the property revalued, a new TIF district will be created for the center. Menards has not yet released specific plans for the building, and the developer of the site has not been named.

Newman Design Group launches “Made in America” tag
This month, Newman Design Group introduced a new vinyl shelf tag to the market. The 1-and-1/4-in. high by 1-and-1/2-in. wide tag is printed with an American flag and the words “Made in America,” and is intended for retailers wishing to promote American-made products in their stores. Newman Group said the tag is easy to clean and may be displayed a number of ways.
Newman’s “Made in America” tags are now in stock for retailers, ship from Indiana and come in rolls of 500. They are priced at $71.30/roll for one to five rolls, $59.18/roll for six to 10 rolls, and $50.30/roll for 11 or more rolls.
The tag should say "Made in
The tag should say "Made in the USA". The tag is supposed to make the customer believe the product was made in this country. Made in America could be Canada, Mexico or for that matter, since North or South isn't mentioned, it could be any country in South America and still be an accurate. Misleading, but accurate.
This is kinda a double
This is kinda a double standard selling lables not made in America but promoting made in America.
Tech conference puts oldest rookie in the lineup
Tech provider eCommerce Industries Inc. (ECI), a leader in industry‐specific information technology solutions, arranged for Jim Morris to deliver the keynote address at Connect Conference 2011, a national users’ meeting for their software solutions.
The conference will be held Nov. 1 to 3, 2011, at the Renaissance Worthington Hotel in Fort Worth, Texas.
As the featured speaker, Morris will open the conference Nov. 2, delivering his inspirational message about following dreams and the importance of having a game plan for success. His story begins when, as a 35‐year‐old high school physics teacher and coach, he made a bet with his baseball team that if the team won a district championship he would try out for the big leagues. When the team won, he followed through with his promise. Just three months later, Morris achieved his dream of pitching in the big leagues by striking out the first hitter he faced. Morris’ story was highlighted in the Disney movie “The Rookie,” starring Dennis Quaid.
“Everyone can relate to Jim Morris’ remarkable story,” said Ron Books, president and CEO of ECI Software Solutions. “He is just an ordinary guy who, through hard work and determination, experienced something extraordinary. But really, it’s a story about how having a game plan and sticking to it produces awesome results."
