I would love a Panera to open up in the old Hallmark location. I hear a Dollar General may go there instead? Not really excited about that, but it beats a vacant store front. The beer distributor store would make a great gluten free bakery/allergy free bakery! Just an idea.

All good ideas. I think a gluten free bakery would go over really well, and having a Panera that's closer than Ross, Cranberry or Robinson, would be convenient for those of us always looking for wi fi spots.

I was also thinking a Panera type restaurant. Or maybe a sit down pizza place for families would be nice.

I like the sit down pizza place idea.
