I am not sure the deamnd is there in the area and what would make people stop there instead of the other larger existing bookstores mentioned above. As well, there really isn't that much "consumer" foot traffic in the Madison Village area.
Actually the foot traffic at night is not what it could be, but it is not as dead as many other
areas. Maybe it could be the first step in recovery from when the city ran Chris Andrews out.
There is space, though my friend just grabbed Chain Link Addiction's spot two weeks ago.
It is not a walk in business, but he said he could get it for less than a warehouse!
Baby steps, in bringing back the area.
It brings a smile to my face every time I hear papers cannot make it in this age.
good to hear that someone will already be filling Chain Link's building. I hope that Lakewood can keep improving to bring in more traffic, but I live right in that area and like you mentioned, it is not what it could be.
I see many other empty store fronts there and many which seem occupied but never "open".
