The Main Connection celebrates grand opening with more than 225 in attendance

By | April 7, 2017

Thank you to the more than 200 people who came out to help all of us at The Main Connection celebrate our grand opening on Tuesday.  It was wonderful to see the synergy in the room as more and more folks came in to check out the transformation of this iconic school admin building to a dynamic business center for the whole community.  The Main Connection, redeveloped by Doug and Paula Molin of Molin Properties, is the new home to local businesses Agresta, Storms & O’Leary, Boys & Collins’ Financial Group, and Integrity Mortgage, along with the Martinsville Chamber and Visit Morgan County, the countywide tourism office.

The Chamber has also partnered with the Molins to offer cowork space, located in the center of the building.  A cowork space is a membership-based workspace used by a diverse groups of freelancers, remote workers, start-ups and professionals working independently, but sharing equipment, ideas, and knowledge.  The goal of coworking is to create a community of bright, creative people, setting the stage for “serendipitous collisions” a term used often by John Wechsler, founder of Launch Fishers.

JK’s @ The Main Coffee Bar, a satellite location of JK’s Cheescake and Coffee, also recently opened its doors inside The Main Connection and currently offers great coffees, teas, smoothies and other drinks, as well as assorted baked goods, between the hours of 8:00 am and 1:00 pm.  Hours will be expanded as demand warrants.

The conference room at The Main Connection has been named the Ruth Rusie Room, in honor of long time resident and dedicated volunteer, Ruth Rusie.
