I recollect a Checker's store in Price Hill on the south side of Glenway Ave., east of the old Sears & Roebuck, in the vicinity of Gilsey Ave.

was to house the Big Melon, a bookstore and some other businesses.
FWIW: The book store was probably the Wyoming Book Shop,
which later moved to Wyoming Ave. One of the other businesses
was called "Fancy This, Fancy That".

...which moved to that strip mall from Wyoming Ave, only to eventually relocate to Hyde Park. As of last month, the entire mall is up for rent except for a small PC repair shop at the far end.
During the now-distant past, the building had been a Parkview grocery store. A food market that'd now be called "yuppie," The Big Melon, was the anchor business after its owner bought and renovated the building and moved the store from across Vine St into expanded quarters.

Right - I've probably got it backwards. The only reference to it
on hand is an ad in the 1972 Roundup reading:

Joan's Book Shoppe
The Wyoming Book Store
415 Wyoming Avenue

Any idea when they moved?

Coincidentally, later yearbooks have ads for "Fancy This, Fancy That",
but not for the book store.

Last I ever heard of Rob Paris was when studio was on Galbraith near McIntoshes. As far as I remember, went out of business in the 80s??

Correct, it was a landmark on Galbraith Rd thanks to the wall of windows on the front of the building - which made quite a mess when the windows blew out during the 1969 tornado. At the center of the building's facade was a large light-blue panel with a silver "RP" logo.
Many are the Cincinnatians with Olan Mills photo portraits, but Rob Paris portraits are the mark of a true Cincinnatian. My parents have a wall full of Rob Paris pics depicting goyguy and his siblings in our earlier years. I used to hate photo sessions w/Rob Paris, lol...we always had to get all dressed up, and he'd use eye-burning flashbulbs and do a gazillion takes.

No, you have the businesses backwards FTFT is the store which went from Wyoming to Hartwell and then to Hyde Park. The book shop probably just went out of business rather than relocate. FTFT bought ad space in my yearbook, too.

So was there anything else in that strip mall besides BM and FTFT
at the time?
