I would love a wine and cheese shop that offers local wineries selections. It could also offer hard to find micro brews. This is just coming from my perspective. I am married with no kids. However people I know with little ones would love a Gymboree or Bounce U in that location.

Yes we do need more food establishments..just more upscale. Was a wonderful restuarant there back in the day called the franklin inn...what we don't need is more pizza, nails, or tatoos
