[UPDATE] Visions for Vacancies: Cheshire Retail

Should a franchise restaurant open in the former Rite Aid store? Some Cheshire Patch readers think so!

A large retail space that has been empty since late 2010 is located in one of the busiest shopping centers in Cheshire.

The former closed in Maplecroft Plaza when the company's new, and much larger store, opened nearby on Main Street.

What kind of business would you like to see move into this spot? It covers about 7,000 square feet and is available to lease. So far, most comments hope to see a Panera Bread franchise. The latest suggestion is for a Trader Joe's.

What do you want to see open on Highland Avenue? A children's clothing store, a "glow in the dark" mini-golf outlet, skateboard shop?

Tell us in the comments below!

It's time to finally bring back Mrs. Stahl's Knishes. I've been so depressed since they closed their store in Brighton Beach! Okay, just kidding (actually, only somewhat)...with Whole Foods enjoying Cheshire as a location for their Distribution Center, it only seems right that they open an actual store here, so I'm adding my vote to Terry T's.

Oops, hit the submit key too quickly - it looks like it was Janice who suggested Whole Foods. Sorry, folks.
