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.
