  1. City of Cleveland Issues RFP for West Side Market Consultant The City of Cleveland has issued today a request for proposals (RFP) for a consultant to help reshape the West Side Market (WSM) customer experience by evaluating existing practices and developing a strategic action plan to drive change at the Market. Click here to view the RFP. “We are in search of a consultant that can think outside of the box to enhance the Market’s competitive edge,” said Chief Operating Officer Darnell Brown. “As the historic institution continues to adapt to the evolving demands of 21st Century customers, the City of Cleveland seeks a consultant who can evaluate and recommend ways to enhance overall customer experience, vendor mix, and quality of products and services. We also want to create a process for customers to be able to provide feedback.” Each year, the WSM attracts approximately 1.2 million visitors. The City of Cleveland seeks a consultant who can analyze and make recommendations on four main areas: Administrative: Create a process and establish a tool to evaluate vendor performance and vendor selection. Develop a tool to receive customer feedback and evaluate customer satisfaction. Entrepreneurial Growth & Recruitment: Provide recommendations on vendor recruitment. Develop recommendations to diversify products and services. Analyze the role of the Market as a business incubator and identify specific services required to support the success of vendors. Make recommendations for creative revenue streams that encourage repeat customer visits. Facilities Management & Capital Planning: Review West Side Market Capital Plan to focus on customer access to products, services and events. Review and assess the day to day maintenance practices of the facilities and provide recommendations on ways to increase efficiency, streamline project coordination and enhance communication with vendors and outside departments. Encourage Community Engagement, Outreach and Bridge Building: Review and assess the WSM 2019 Community Survey and 2019 Marketing Plan to create tools that measure customer satisfaction going forward as the vendor recommendations are implemented. Conceptualize a plan on how the WSM can enhance its strategic relationships while adhering to its core mission. Engage in collaborative partnerships with community partners (i.e. RTA, VA, Hunger Network, Cleveland Restoration etc.). The action items developed by the selected vendor will supplement a number of investments and goals the City of Cleveland has recently announced. Over the past six years, the City has invested more than $5.4 million in capital repairs to improve the grand 107-year-old structure. Recent repairs include the installation of new boilers, improvements to some electrical systems, a new parking lot, roof repairs, new cooling systems and more.

  2. CIFF44 Announces Opening Night and Closing Night Films OPENING NIGHT AT PLAYHOUSE SQUARE On Wednesday, March 25 at 7:00 PM, CIFF44 will open with MILITARY WIVES. The film centers on a group of women from different backgrounds whose partners are away serving in Afghanistan. Faced with their loved ones’ absences, they come together to form the very first military wives choir, helping each other through some of life’s most difficult moments, and quickly find themselves on an international stage. Peter Cattaneo (THE FULL MONTY) directs Kristin Scott Thomas and Sharon Horgan in this feel-good crowd-pleaser inspired by true events. CLOSING NIGHT AT TOWER CITY CENTER On Sunday, April 5 at 7:00 PM, the Festival will close with DREAM HORSE. The film tells the inspiring true story of Dream Alliance, an unlikely race horse bred by small town Welsh bartender, Jan Vokes (Academy Award® nominee Toni Collette). With very little money and no experience, Jan convinces her neighbors to chip in their meager earnings to help raise Dream in the hopes he can compete with the racing elites. The group’s investment pays off as Dream rises through the ranks with grit and determination and goes on to race in the Welsh Grand National, showing the heart of a true champion. All those in attendance at any of the films showing at Tower City Cinemas on Closing Night are invited to the Closing Night Ceremony (dessert reception and awards presentation) around the Tower City Center Grand Staircase after the screenings. Tickets go on sale for CIFF members Friday, March 6 at 11:00 AM, and to non-members on Friday, March 13 at 11:00 AM. Tickets to any Closing Night film are $14 for CIFF members and $16 for non-members.

  7. CIFF44 is delighted to unveil this year’s theme: SEE BEYOND The theme is a nod to exploring new and different places, ideas, and conventions. The Festival enthusiastically challenges its audience to do this through the remarkable on-screen stories brought to Cleveland each year by exceptionally talented filmmakers from around the world. The theme, designed by the team at Type Twenty Seven is also a celebration of the Festival’s home in Tower City Cinemas for the last 30 years. During that time, the Festival’s growth exceeded all expectations by screening more than 7,000 films and welcoming over 1.6 million film fans. “See Beyond resonated with our design team as a way to showcase elements of Tower City Center that are not normally recognized,” said Brittyn DeWerth, Creative Director and Owner of Type Twenty Seven. “By looking beyond the basics, our goal was to illustrate the exquisite architectural details—revealing the beauty it holds. In addition, the choice of color allows for a visual pop of information, and subtle tone-on-tone in the background begs to be explored.” The Festival is once again working with Fusion Filmworks to produce the CIFF trailer, which will be released on Opening Night at Playhouse Square on Wednesday, March 25, 2020. The 44th Cleveland International Film Festival will be held March 25 – April 5, 2020 at Tower City Cinemas. More than 600 screenings will take place during the 12 days of the Festival, with over 400 guest filmmakers from around the world who will be on-hand for Q&As. CIFF44 program details will be available at clevelandfilm.org on Friday, February 28, with Program Guides hitting the streets the week of March 2. Tickets will go on sale to CIFF Members on Friday, March 6th and to the general public on Friday, March 13. For more information, please visit clevelandfilm.org.
  8. Not that it adds a significant number of jobs to the total, but Euclid actually has two Amazon facilities. There is a FLEX operation on Bluestone and it employs roughly 50 people (just a wild guess from what I've physically seen there since it opened almost three years ago). I imagine whatever number of jobs are at that location might be the same number as at the FLEX location in Twinsburg. Euclid serves almost all of Northeast Ohio. From Ashtabula to Lorain and as far south as Akron. Twinsburg is a smaller operation delivering mainly around the I-80 corridor. There is also FLEX center in Canton which also delivers Amazon Fresh (currently the only on in NE doing so). Since these new locations are, according to the Crain's article, smaller than the main distribution centers, My guess is that they will take some of the stress from the Euclid location for delivery to points west and will solidify the introduction of Amazon Fresh and Amazon Restaurant Delivery (maybe) to the Cleveland and surrounding areas.
  9. Did a dry cleaner used to be located on this site? That's what the chemical mentioned in the article (tetrachloroethylene) is mainly used for.
  10. A couple of responses not already touched on in the article: Opening night has been held at the Conner the past two years and were both sold out (iirc) Parking is always an issue - particularly during events like Indians Home Opener (ugh) There will actually be more parking in the same general footprint available for PSQ than at TC (CSU and other lots) We already have plans worked out for ticket holders vs. standby that have worked out just fine whenever we have had the neighborhood showings, so this is not a problem - and if there is a problem, we will tweak it just like we do every year Generally - suburbanites complain about everything
