Stacie, I have to give credit where credit is due. I drove through the Deming Way extension and saw that the meteor size pot holes were filled in. If you had a part in that then I want to give you credit and thanks. Keep taking care of those elderly folks, there are many nice people down there.

Maybe if a new store opens up Kevin can get a job. I bet the town manager, selectman, and school committee hopes he will work 2nd shift.

David, the one in Reading isn't far if you cut thru Reading Center,right off any side road off Main St. ..it's pretty close.

This is a great thread. Lots of positive images of the past, and hopefully the future. Of course, we can fantasize all we like, it will have no impact on if these things come to pass or not, but is it still fun. I ate for the first time today at Chick Fil A. I am not a huge fast food fan, but the chicken sandwiches were pretty good. If we must fast food, I would say that would be okay. Earlier, someone mentioned Big Joe's. He is still there, and still open, and still makes great sandwiches, meat pies and more. And of course, the floor show is the best in town. I cut thru Reading to get to Home Depot too, and it is not too far, but closer would be better. I think someplace wholesome and fun where kids and teens can hang out with or for families to hang out would be great. A sports center with batting cages or maybe a go cart race track, maybe a multi discipline place with billiards, arcades and other simple games. Mexican food is a good thought. My family has some gluten sensitivities, and this past weekend we went to Woodman's in Essex for the first time. It is similar to a Kelly's kind of place (in Revere, on the beach) and they are almost all Gluten free. Something like that would be great.
