Support Local Businesses at the Grand Opening of 880 Alexandria Pike

Stop by May 11th and support local businesses for the Grand Opening of 880 Alexandria Pike!

By Jessie Eden

An exciting event to encourage and welcome new businesses in the community is set to kick off in May. The grand opening of 880 Alexandria Pike on Tuesday, May 11 from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. is a joint effort between several Fort Thomas/Newport businesses to support each other. 

The newly revamped building will be home to three new businesses -- Tailored Home Solutions, My Design, and Connecting Hearts. It is located just across the street from the baseball fields near Woodfill Elementary.

Kelly Klein, owner of Tailored Home Solutions, organized the Grand Opening.

The idea for this Grand Opening came from Kelly Klein, the owner of Tailored Home Solutions. "I have always been a firm believer in unity. There is an African Proverb that I live by which says “If you want to go fast, go alone. If you want to go far, go together.” I’ve discovered working as a small business owner, just how important our surrounding community is," said Kelly. 

In Fall 2020, Kelly opened her office...but due to Covid, they had to delay the grand opening until it was safe to do so. 

When she heard that other businesses were moving into the complex, she approached the business owners to see if they'd like to do a collaborative Grand Opening. "Last year highlighted just how vital and precious our local businesses are to a successful future together. I recognized that we had an opportunity to build up our community as well as our businesses together. I was humbled by the welcoming support from even the more established businesses in our community. We truly appreciate them being a part of this," said Kelly. 

Other businesses were enthusiastic about the idea! "Every single business was thrilled to participate in a joint opening. It has been so wonderful getting to experience such a welcoming community, who wants to build one another as a collective, even though we are still independent companies. We are truly honored to have such caring and excellent neighbors.We had already planned to have a drive-thru version of an open house with participating local businesses and give away hospital-grade disinfectants to the community."

Grand Opening Details

The event will feature a ribbon-cutting ceremony at 10 a.m., office tours of the new businesses, raffles, drawings, wine tastings, and complimentary food pairings. There will even be a drive-through set up to pass out hospital-grade disinfectant and other complimentary items from participating businesses.

The event is free and open to the public. Executive Transportation will offer shuttle services from the Tower Park Mess Hall beginning at 9:30 a.m. until 1:00 p.m. 

The Grand Opening is sponsored by Hilltop Laundromat, Grassroots & Vine, Applaud Creative, State Farm, Schoepf & Associates, and Executive Transportation.

"I am inspired to work as hard as I do, simply because I want to help others and our community as a whole.

Even though we are vastly different businesses, we continue to give and service our community because we are a part of the whole," said Kelly. "Each piece, person, and business creates the whole picture. It is up to us to step up in order to come together and grow our local communities.
