A juggler, an urban beekeeper and a man who sees modern decor in a tattered Goodyear sign. These are three of the more than 100 small businesses in Akron and Warren who are getting intensive training from eBay over the next two months. They’re part of eBay’s first Retail Revival.

WKSU’s M.L. Schultze visited with some of the uber-local businesses hoping to market themselves on a global scale.

An Akron beekeeper is offering unique types of honey from hives scattered across the city.

In today’s Quick Bite, WKSU’s Vivian Goodman reports the color and flavor of each batch depends on the nectar source in different residential neighborhoods.

Brent Wesley, the founder of Akron Honey Company, works full time in information technology. He got into beekeeping for the love of honey.
