Suggestions: Ice cream parlor, shoe store, Verizon or book store

A book store would be nice now that Borders is gone.

Book store! I would open one if I had money!!! Maybe Paperback Junction in Easton needs a second location?!?

I agree with the book store or shoe store. Annie's or Paperback Junction would do well there.

I agree with the book store. I'd also really like to see a Horse Tack store in the area!

I just learned that L.A. Fitness was to go into the former Dress Barn but there are concerns with the septic system in that plaza and they were rejected.

Any idea why the vacant spaces?

A couple of tenants said rent was too high.

I often see a lot of traffic in the plaza, but I can't say for sure which stores are doing well aside from Roche Bros.

Do you know how long the spaces have been vacant for? I know for at least a year since your article was from a year ago...
Ben Dn March 29, 2013 at 10:30 PM
And thank you for replying!!! :)

Many of those place are still vacant while maybe a couple have been filled. Fiesta Mexican Restaurant, for example, is about a month old. I don't know exactly how long they have been vacant.

They are asking way too much money per square foot given the amount of space that's empty in this plaza. It's a great plaza too. Been trying to negotiate with them for a lower rate, but they just won't have it. You'd think a paying lessee would be better than no lessee. Guess not.
