What Do You Think Should Go Here?

It was going to be a Subway, then the site was cleared. Now what?

Welcome to Visions for Vacancies, a new feature on Tewksbury Patch. Each week we will give you, our readers the chance to have your say as to what type of business you this would be appropriate and beneficial for the town in a particular lot or vacant storefront.

This lot, at 2163 Main St., is located across the street from Jim Boudreau's Auto Repair in South Tewksbury, and has been eyesore for longer than anyone would care to talk about. At one time it was the home to Direct Auto Parts.

It had been going to be a Subway sandwich shop. But then there were major problems with the work being done by a Lancaster-based contractor.

The site was cleared and, supposedly, new plans are in the works.

But what do you think should go in this commercial location? What type of business would best be suited for Tewksbury and for this particular spot?

The "Dental Group" is the next lot over. How about taking this lot and the old go kart racing lot and making a nice town park common area (like Wakefield has) so people can enjoy nature in Tewksbury rather than stuff their faces with fast food.

Where is the LIKE button?? That would be a FANTASTIC Idea!

I just thought of another idea for the open space. Red Robin, yum! I have tried the one that opened up at the Pheasant Lane Mall in Nashua, NH. It is a very classy Hamburger Plus more establishment. They have a frequent user card and give away free meals after you meet their requirement. Drinks and fries are unlimited after you order your meal. Their prices are really reasponable too.

Not a pet store. Panera Bread would be great/ maybe a mexican restaurant Tewksbury really needs good restaurants so people doesn't have to outside the town.

Panera Bread would be wonderful! As for the stores being too close to each other, my husband and I went to Panera in Wilmington last Sunday. Could not get in! They had a waiting list. We went to get a couple of bagels and there were none. They were sold out! This was 11:30 Sunday morning. So I think one in Tewksbury would work really well.
