What Should the Newest Store be in Walmart Plaza?

The plaza is thriving with hundreds of cars driving in and out daily, but there is a void to fill. How would you propose to fill it?

Let's call this a modern spin on community planning - Patch's version of a charette, a digital drawing board where all ideas are on the table.

Each week we'll present a new vacant building and ask you to tell us what you think would be the best use. Forget what zone it's in, ignore setback regulations, dump lot coverage rules and all the other zoning jargon that puts people most to sleep. If you had your way, what would you like to see there? What would be the best use for the community?

This week our journey takes us to Walmart Plaza where businesses are thriving thanks to a heavy traffic flow that passes through the area each day. There's just one problem: an empty storefront near .

The plaza boasts not only an active , but one of the town's largest selections of wines at and one of the town's most popular restaurants in the . The rest of the plaza has constant activity as well.

It seems that another store with a special niche, this would be the place to thrive. So now we turn our question to you.

What would you have fill the empty storefront located within the strip mall at Wal-Mart Plaza?

We want to know the best way to make that business thrive again. How would you propose to fill the vacant spot? Your thoughts could make a difference, so share your input now!

I would; like to see a Home Goods Store. We certainly do not need another liquor store on route 10 and we have plenty of restaurants.
