Despite the boom in internet selling, Darko Inc., an in-store marketer, believes brick-and-mortar retailing will continue to flourish. After all, online giant Amazon already is a customer.
Darko, a maker of retail point-of-purchase displays, has been growing and it wants to expand as the business dives deeper and deeper into high-tech displays. So the brother-owned business is putting together a $5.8 million financing package, with some help from Cuyahoga County, to move from Twinsburg to larger facilities in Bedford Heights.
The business is owned by brothers Dan, Dean and Derek Rinicella. They bought it from their father, who started the business in 1974, a dozen years ago.
