Visions for Vacancies: 8300 Manchester Road
What would you like to see move in here?
Colt Safety, an online retailer of safety products, once occupied this 30,000 square foot building. Colt was started by Christine Bierman in 1980, and she turned it into a 10 million dollar company.
The company lost its biggest customer due to rising costs, and is now in receivership, according to an article in The St. Louis Business Journal.
The building is now available. What would you like to see move into the space? A restaurant? An antiques shop?
