Business owner reluctant to move

By mrasor Published: June 14, 2007

As the Buchtelite reported in April, Manuel Nemer reaffirmed to WEWS his reluctance to move from Exchange Street.
The owner of Manny's Pub and Aroma Coffee and Tea wants to remain on the Zip Strip, as the property attracts many college students. WEWS insinuated there would be an eminent domain battle for this land.
I have a hunch WEWS's report is a little premature, though, for three reasons. First, the university has not contacted Nemer in two years. Second, the Akron Beacon Journal story said nothing of needing land from business owners, only houses. Third, if you see this picture, there is still a plaza of businesses on Exchange Street.
