It’s fairly easy to get close, but most visitors require a little extra help pin-pointing my location.
My official postal address sometimes works well enough:7913 Euclid Chardon Rd – suite 7, Kirtland OH 44094
and for many a slightly different one seems to be better for GPS, or with freight companies:7913 Chardon Road, in WIlloughby Hills – Unit #7
It seems GPS sometimes direct folks to my building, but tries to bury them in the wetlands of Chapin Forest Reservation out back. In most cases GPS erroneously directs visitors 1/8-mile to the east, onto Gildersleeve Drive. Don’t fall for that… Here’s how to find me:
I’m in a small industrial center, called Parkview North Center, on the north side of Route-6 (Euclid-Chardon Rd), exactly 0.5 miles west of Chillicothe <306> and about 4.2 miles east of SOM Center <91>. I [intentionally, so far] do not have any signage, but there’s a marquee sign for the property out near the road, listing some of the tenants. I am in Unit 7. You may see plenty of trucks, trailers, and heavy equipment around. Simply continue 7/10’s of the way down the front (east) side of the building. That’s where I am, and there’s a tiny Hubbub sticker in the window of my front door. The presence (or lack) of my vehicle may not be an accurate indicator of whether I’m present or able to accept walk-ins.
There are two main tan-colored buildings, an L-shaped one to the east, and I am in the I-shaped one to the west. If you mistakenly turn into the eastern building first , there’s no need to pull back out into traffic. The parking areas are connected out back, so just continue around (beware of exiting trucks) and make your way over to the adjacent building to the west – a few feet higher grade level.
Fall 2022 update: We have a new super-easy way to identify exactly where to turn into my location. An easy to indentify brand new building, a landscaping supply business called VillageOutdoors, has been built directly across the road.
From the south (Columbus)– Come up I-271 N, stay left to continue east when it terminates to I-90. Immedately after bypassing the exit to I-90 W, merge far right for Exit 189, to SOM Center Rd, Willoughby Hills. Upon exiting, turn left to head south on SOM Center <91> for 0.75 miles; then turn left to head east on Chardon Rd <6>. Continue for approximately 4.2 miles, and you’ll find me on the north (left) side, at the crest of a hill just after Tibbets Rd. When you see VillageOutdoors on the right, that’s where you turn left.
From the west (Cleveland) – If you’re coming out on I-90, continue east after the I-271 interchange, but stay in the right lane to take Exit 189, for SOM Center Rd, Willoughby Hills. Upon exiting, turn left to head south on SOM Center <91> for 0.75 miles; then turn left to head east on Chardon Rd <6>. Continue for approximately 4.2 miles, and you’ll find me on the north (left) side, at the crest of a hill just after Tibbets Rd. When you see VillageOutdoors on the right, that’s where you turn left.
From the east (Erie) – Heading west on I-90, take Exit 193 for Rt <306> and Kirtland. Upon exiting, turn left on Broadmoor Rd <306> and head south through Kirtland (becomes Chillicothe Rd). After 4.25 miles, turn right on Euclid-Chardon Rd <6>, and you’ll find me on the north (right) side after 0.5 miles. When you see VillageOutdoors on the left, that’s where you turn right.
If you happen to miss either Exit 193 (from the east) or Exit 189 (from the west/south), simply continue to the next (other) exit and follow the above directions, but as if you’re coming from the opposite direction. For example, if you miss Exit 189, continue east on I-90 to Exit 193, and take Rt.306 south to Rt.6 west.
