TechShop offered a cutting edge workshop for entrepreneurs making prototypes or those who just wanted to make stuff.
Now the St. Louis location and nine others around the country are closed. TechShop announced on Wednesday it’s filing for Chapter 7 bankruptcy.
The San Francisco-based company came to St. Louis in 2016. The maker’s space had a prime location in the innovation district Cortex in a new, 60,000-square-foot building at 4260 Forest Park Ave.
“It was a surprise to us,” said Dennis Lower, president and CEO of Cortex.
