In 2011, the ESC established Unique Like Me as the first retail site soley operated by the ESC staff and students. All items sold in the store are made by the students. In addition, the students fully participate in the operation of the retail setting including greeting the customers, keeping the store clean, tracking the inventory, and running the cash register.
In 2018 Unique Like Me continued as a storefront vocational skills training site, in partnership with Broadmoor/Deepwood and several school districts. The partnership for this year consists of: Broadmoor/Deepwood, Madison Local Schools, Mentor Public Schools, Painesville City Local Schools, and Perry Local Schools. The site offers students opportunities to demonstrate their skills and talents and to interact with the community by selling their handmade, unique products. Stop and see what this unique setting has to offer you. Hope to see you there!
