Beauty Shoppe’s new South Side coworking space includes studio-storefronts for makers

The Beauty Shoppe‘s latest co-working outpost has a unique twist: This 12,000-square-foot workspace on the South Side includes four studio spaces that double as retail storefronts. Ranging in size from 800 to 1,200 square feet, these studio-storefronts include their own exterior public entrances on Terminal Way. So a crafter or maker can manufacture goods in the same high-visibility space where they sell their wares

Our view: Bridgeway loans fuel inclusion

"As Rink reported, since 2012, Pittsburgh-based Bridgeway has made 76 loans totaling $12 million to Erie County entrepreneurs like Heidelberg. He used a $15,000 loan from Bridgeway’s Urban Enterprise Fund to open his Dapper Don’s Styling Lounge in a vacant storefront at West 26th and Peach streets and Bridgeway provided him technical support from experts who helped ensure his success.
