R.I.P. Mairose Bros Grocery

Well Mairose (Hyde Park, Cincinnati) is finally kaput. When we left for work today the building was standing, a solid neighbor for many years. Today we came home to find bricks, bent steel, and splintered wood. Goodbye Mairose.

Our church, St. Mary’s in the background, will build a new parking lot and attractive landscaping for the Suburbans, Escalades, and Navigators that shuttle kids to and from school each day. The street does open up quite a bit with the building, which was very close to the curb, no longer there.

Mairose Bros Grocery is reduced to rubble on Monday July 23rd.
