In The News! West Side Leader 3/5/15

West Side Business News & Notes

3/5/2015 - West Side Leader


By Staff Writer


Building 9 plans move to Sharon


SHARON — Home improvement store Building 9 plans to relocate to Sharon Township in a new building that could be open this summer.


Vice President Shane Haumesser said he hopes to see ground broken for the 42,000-square-foot building at 546 Medina Road sometime in the next few weeks. The new location will be west of Medina Line Road.


The relocation of the current Akron store at 945 S. Main St. is necessary due to a major Ohio Department of Transportation project that will reconfigure the Interstate 77/76 interchange at South Main and South Broadway streets.


The project will be good for the business, Haumesser said.


“It’s going to be bigger with a flat floor plan and wide open space,” he said. “It will have better lighting and just a better scenario altogether. We’re going from a 100-year-old building to a new building.”


Last fall, Copley officials had said that Building 9 planned to relocate its Akron location to the former 84 Lumber location at Copley Road and state Route 21. That plan fell through, Haumesser said.


He added that Building 9 must vacate its present site sometime between July and August. The business, which sells new and closeout home improvement materials, will not change its business model.


Building 9 also has a location at 132 Walnut Road S.W. in Massillon.

New for 2015 from Schrock Cabinetry

Posted on March 2, 2015 at 3:40 PM Comments comments (0)

See what's new from Schrock Cabinetry for 2015!

Check out the latest additions in door and finish options for your upcoming kitchen and bath projects this year...



If your jaw hits the bathroom floor and nobody is around to hear it, does it still make a sound? Such deep thoughts are naturally to be expected when you lose yourself in an environment so inviting. Introducing Forest Floor, our forward-looking, full-hiding, neutral opaque available on all Maple door styles. It yields an earthy, brown hue that complements our broader range of wood species and tones, and proves a rich alternative for those searching for a respite from black. You feel more at home already.



There are places in this world — in your little corner, perhaps — that seem to be uniquely designed for just rolling with an idea and seeing where it goes. Thatch is another example of how we’re always dreaming up new ways to make mixing and matching colors, grains and textures less time consuming and so much more fulfilling. Right in line with design forecasts calling for warm complements to cool neutrals, this versatile finish is specially formulated to enhance our existing opaques and stains. Build it, and the ideas will come.



In order to move forward with something new, sometimes you first have to step back — a really, really long way back. Such is the case with Henna. Born of plants; coveted by aesthetic aficionados as far back as ancient Egypt; now available on Cherry and Maple — this rich brown finish features subtle red undertones and eagerly awaits the opportunity to take its rightful place within your modern color palette. Plus, it never hurts to make sure the design gods are happy.



How do we continue to make big splashes with our new finishes? Because we’ve made a habit of listening to designers and learning. And from everything you’ve told us, our stone gray, semi-translucent stain (previously available only on Maple) has taken homeowners’ imaginations by, well, you know. Plus, with popular tastes continuing to align with the natural richness of Cherry, it only made sense to add Storm to your creative consideration set.



Contemporary whites and neutrals continue to dominate home decor magazines. And sales of classic wood grains such as Maple, Cherry and

Hickory have managed to hold strong. But don’t count out Oak. More and more signs are pointing to the trend that Oak is on the comeback. To help you stay ahead of the curve, we’re expanding some of our most popular glazes to increase your options for creating an ever-popular rustic look. Tells you where we think the smart money is going.



Seaton has become one of our most popular transitional door styles since it first left the wood shop. The fact that you continue to ask us for more design options in Cherry hasn’t escaped our attention, either. So this year we made a point of adding Seaton to our ever-expanding list of available Cherry door styles. Granted, it isn’t the most earth-shaking announcement we’ve ever made. But even the most daring designer knows there’s a lot to be said for doing something simply because it makes sense.

Important Update: New Location for Akron

Posted on February 20, 2015 at 2:15 PM Comments comments (0)

Materials supplier Building 9 to relocate from Akron to Sharon Township this summer

By Betty Lin-Fisher Beacon Journal business writer

Published: February 20, 2015 - 06:07 PM

Building 9 is rebuilding its relocation plans.

The popular discount building materials supplier in downtown Akron had announced that it would be moving to Copley Township in the spring, but that deal fell through.

Instead, the owners of Building 9 are constructing a 42,000-square-foot warehouse/store on vacant land in Sharon Township. The 6½-acre lot is across the street and slightly to the west of Pinnacle Sports on state Route 18.

The location, 546 Medina Road , is about halfway between Interstate 71 and 77, making it good access for Building 9 customers in Akron and Cleveland, Building 9 President Brennan Dunn said.

546 Medina Road, Route 18, in Medina, Ohio 44256   view a map >

The supplier didn’t want to move from its location of 31 years at 945 S. Main St., just off an Interstate 77 interchange. However, it is among 30 other properties — mostly commercial — slated to be demolished as the Ohio Department of Transportation builds a new $96 million highway interchange at South Broadway and South Main.

In the fall, Dunn and his partner, Shane Haumesser, announced they would be buying the former 84 Lumber yard off state Route 21 at the Copley Road (state Route 162) exit. Akron businessman Paul Thomarios owns that location and has been looking to sell it.

On Friday, Thomarios acknowledged that a covenant on the property prevented Building 9 from buying it. He hopes to resolve that issue for future buyers and understood that Building 9 needed to find another location. Dunn still wanted to relocate to the west of Akron, knowing that’s where a majority of his customers are coming from.

“We’re sorry we’re not moving to Copley, but we’re really looking forward to moving to Sharon Center, and they’ve been very cooperative,” Dunn said. “It’ll be really great for our Cleveland suburban customers and still great for Akron customers.”

He declined to disclose any financial details. He said there are 12 employees and hopes to add more at the new location.

Dunn hopes to close on the new property in the next few weeks and begin construction almost immediately. He’s working on logistics of the move from downtown with the state.

Until then, Dunn said he’s struggling to get the word out that Building 9 is not closing.

“We are not going out of business. We are moving to a more customer-friendly facility. It’s definitely going to be warmer than this,” Dunn joked as he and other employees stood around bundled up in hats and gloves in their cold downtown warehouse Friday.

“I think it’s really going to help our business,” he said of the move.

New! Carpet Tiles & Counter Tops - Massillon

Posted on February 7, 2015 at 1:00 PM Comments comments (0)

Building 9 in Massillon, Ohio just received more commercial-grade, indoor modular carpet tiles (19.75" X 19.75") and more laminate kitchen counter tops, too! Colors and patterns vary. See store for current selection.

Jan. 22: Why Modular Carpet Tile?

Posted on January 22, 2015 at 11:55 AM Comments comments (0)

One of the best features of Building 9, is our selection of commercial-grade, indoor modular carpet tiles, or carpet "squares" as they're called. Carpet tiles are a popular flooring choice for the do-it-yourself homeowner, as well as land lords and business owners, too! They're easy to install, easy to maintain, and they come in a wide variety of sizes, colors, and patterns for unlimited design possibilities. (pricing info >)

Why Carpet Tile?

Carpet tile, or modular carpet, offers many advantages. It’s easy to install and easy to clean. If you get a tough stain, just pop out the tile and clean it in a sink. Or, you can replace one tile, not the whole room. And carpet tile is engineered to be tough, that means a long performance life. Plus, it offers infinite design flexibility. In short, carpet tile could be the perfect fit for your installation.

Unlimited Design Flexibility

Because it’s modular, you can mix and match carpet tile colors and patterns to create your own unique look. Or, combine it with other floor coverings for a performance engineered work environment that has visual appeal and fits your long-term flooring budget. Tile can be installed in a variety of ways from monolithic, to complementary, to mix-and-match. The good news is, if you want to change the look, you can simply change out tiles strategically for a fresh appeal. That sure beats scrapping all the flooring and starting over!

Whether it’s cushioned-backed or hard-backed, carpet tile holds up. For high-traffic retail spaces, corporate offices, stain-prone restaurants and everything in between, tile fits the bill. In fact, performance is the reason modular carpet is the floor covering of choice among Fortune 1000 companies. It lasts and looks better longer because it’s built to perform, now and down the road.

Staying Power

For most floor coverings, life cycle is measured in years on the floor. However, modular carpet can be measured by the number of different rooms it has adorned over the years. It’s a long-term flooring solution that can be re-purposed in other work environments with minimal cost. That keeps a lot of carpet out of landfills.

Easy to Install

Modular carpet is easy to install over almost any smooth surface. And because each piece is dimensionally identical to the next, you get a perfectly “square” job every time. Plus, the variety of installation methods allows each space to have its own look and feel. Adhesion techniques also vary, but the bottom line is - tile is glued or free laid - not nailed. That makes it repositionable, even after years on the floor. Because it’s easy to install, you can avoid the downtime usually associated with remodeling.

Easy to Maintain

Modular carpet is typically easy to clean. If you get a tough stain, clean it on the floor or simply pop out the tile and clean it in a sink. Or, in the unlikely event that simple cleaning doesn’t work, you can replace just one tile, not the whole space. That means tenant evacuations for maintenance are a thing of the past and it’s business as usual for everyone. (source:
