So glad this is being brought! I have driven past that eyesore for MANY years and just don't understand why the spot can't be filled! It seems rather ideal to me! How about a Bruegger's?!!!!

Sorry, it's not being bought. We did a story on it to give people an opportunity to see what was currently happening with the site and offer suggestions of what they would like to see go in there. Here's some suggestions people had on Facebook as well. Any thoughts on these ideas? bagel place, Dunkin Donuts, organic fast food, Pizza Ranch, Bob's Produce Ranch, Popeye's --

I would think the store hasn't been used for so long that it would make more sense to destroy the building and start over. Brueggers is a good option.

Since it's not really near other restaurants, do you think another food place might struggle at that location?

Would be fun to see a Flameburger type diner in this spot.

Should have put White Castle there instead of where it is going..............

Chick-fil-A just started construction by TGI Friday's. It should open in September or October, but look for an August 14 pre-opening event. Location is TBD.
