Monday Morning Market Intel: March 9, 2020

YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio – The new week begins with more news expected tonight about economic development in Lordstown when the village’s planning commission meets. A project by Old Dominion Freight Line Inc. is on the agenda. In October, the North Carolina company paid $950,000 to buy 15 acres due north of the proposed site of the GM-LG Chem battery plant.

Last week – make that the last few months – once again a story with a Lordstown dateline ranked among the most-read.

“The Ohio state motto is, ‘With God all things are possible.’ We think we’re going to do the impossible here,” said Lordstown Motors CEO Steve Burns as he opened the doors of the former GM plant Thursday for a tour.

Covelli Enterprises also opened doors last week as it opened a Panera Bread outlet at the Cleveland Clinic. The bakery-café is Covelli’s first on the campus and the fourth Covelli-owned Panera to open within a major medical center. It will operate 24/7.
