At the Rookwood Pavilion shopping center in Norwood, one can sip gourmet coffee, browse through a best-seller, consume a meal, get a haircut or purchase clothes and shoes. However, from 1917 to 1989, one of the premier tool companies in the world, the R.K. LeBlond Machine Tool Co., occupied the site. The company now operates as Makino Machine Tool Co. in Mason.
The name of the Rookwood shopping mall was inspired by the world-famous Rookwood Pottery which traces its roots to Cincinnati. Maria Longworth Nichols Storer, daughter of wealthy Joseph Longworth, founded Rookwood Pottery in 1880. Mrs. Storer named it Rookwood, after her father’s country estate near the city in Walnut Hills. Through years of experimentation with glazes and kiln temperatures, Rookwood pottery became a popular American art pottery, designed to be at least as decorative as it is useful. Today, Rookwood Pottery is owned by Martin and Marilyn Wade and operates from a production studio in the historic Over-the-Rhine neighborhood of Cincinnati.
So, it’s no surprise that Ohio Valley Goodwill is thrilled to have Rookwood as the host location for its’ “Spring Clean-Out for Goodwill “ event at Rookwood Commons coming up May 15th- May 17th! The Spring Clean-Out for Goodwill event will offer a 3 day opportunity for donors to de-clutter their homes and bring their unwanted stuff to the Goodwill Donation Trailer which will be centrally located in the Rookwood parking lot.
Donors will also have the opportunity to meet local radio personalities 55KRC Brian Thomas, KISS DJ D-Lo, and WLW personality Scott Sloan who will be on-hand to lend their support. The “Spring Clean Out for Goodwill” event will be held 9am-9pm on Friday, May 15th and Saturday, May 16th and on Sunday, May 17th from 9am-6pm.
