What Should Go Here?

The old Price Chopper location is vacant, so what would you want to see move there?

It's been a year and a half since the new Price Chopper location opened with much fanfare and celebration.

Since then, though the old location at the corner of Route 9 and Maple Avenue has been dormant.

It is one of the many storefronts that is vacant in town and we want to know what you would put there.

Many local parents have been asking for a kid-friendly restaurant or gathering place, while others are asking for a bookstore like Borders.

If I could take out my magic wand, what would you like to see in that plaza?

If Firestone has to move from White City, this would be a great location - keep the business here in town. We could really use a diner also.

Those are great suggestions! Our fans on Facebook are also talking about a kid-friendly place, a movie theater and one wanted a TJ Maxx. How about you?

so many options.. movie theater, market basket, price rite.... i hope something good goes in there soon. is there anything in the works?

Whole foods maybe but shrewsbury needs a cinema again. I mean first we lost the white city cinema and then one of the best drive ins at the edgmere. Why not at least a little budget cinema? Like west boylston with second runs at a cheap rate.

LOVE that idea. I usually go to about 80/90 movies a year in theaters, and I would love to stay close by!

Not like Shrewsbury needs another grocery story but Whole Foods would be great! Or perhaps a retail store, Target?
