Summer on the Square

Thank you to everyone who joined us for the first Summer on the Square event! It is our community that made the day shine so bright. View more photos on the Shaker Square Facebook page.

We look forward to continuing the summer fun at the next Summer on the Square event on Saturday, July 15. See you then! Find event details on the Shaker Square website.

Storefront carpentry and masonry repairs, which will continue throughout the year.

Parking lot and exterior lighting upgrades to LED bulbs, which are on schedule to be completed this month
Bids for roofing, asphalt for the parking lots, and painting have been received, and the work will begin this month and next. The next two work items to bid are new HVAC units and storefront awnings.

Featured Tenant

Just two years after immigrating here from Ukraine in 1992, Elina Kreymerman opened Shaker Square Dry Cleaning & Tailoring. With her business continuing to run strong nearly 30 years later, today Elina is the longest-tenured business owner on Shaker Square.

Elina credits the neighborhoods surrounding Shaker Square for making her success possible, especially amid the challenges posed to businesses in recent years.

“Shaker Square is a great place,” Elina shares. “A lot of businesses like ours did not survive the pandemic, but we have very loyal customers around here. We know our customers, we know their children, and we even know their dogs! We’re a local business that serves our local community.”
