FIRST LOOK: Robert Mason Co. ready to open in Short North

Columbus Business First previewed Robert Mason Co.’s new Short North store (the original downtown pop-up shop was destroyed by a fire in 2014) in advance of its grand opening.

The 1,800-square-foot space allows Grimmett to pay homage to both his original office supply store in West Virginia and the Gay Street pop-up, while affording him room to expand into new businesses and bring what has been online only to phyiscal life. “He’s meticulous — and I say that in the kindest sense,” said Blake Compton, president of Compton Construction, which built the store. “It’s his vision. We built it. I think it’s well beyond his dreams. It’s beautiful.”
