What Business Should Go Here?

The shop has been empty since the Whistle Stop moved to it's bigger space down the road.

The success of its breakfast menu enabled the Whistle Stop to move down the road, occupying a large space to accommodate its growing customer base. 

The restaurant's move has also left an open store front on Broad Street. It's a spot with limited parking, but a great deal of walking traffic, particularly in the warmer months. And given plans to develop town center, it could be the perfect spot for Windsor's next mom and pop or even a chain.

So what do you think should go here? Should someone come in to renovate and turn the place into a pub in the heart of town? Would it make a good Starbucks?

Tell us in the comments.

That space is way to small for an kind of 'teen center' something like that would be great over near CBT.

Lots of awesome ideas....the bottom line is to get the residents to support whatever goes in, and to come to the center. We did have a nice bookstore at one time, a lovely bath shop, a woman's consignment shop, candy...where are they now?? I can't support them all!! : )

A burrito place would be great with Loomis so close. Or a Rita's.

Jan you have a good point. Supporting Windsor small business is Key! We seem to want to open coffee shops, Nail salons and pizza places! Why? Just puts someone out of business. Windsor goes out of town for their shopping needs! It is sad! Jordan Florist has such a great selection of gift Ideas, We have several places to get coffee and baked goods ( 3 opened in the past 2 months). Plus 3 Grocery stores that sell baked goods.
