What Would You Like To See In Place of the Old Foodville Market?

Tell us what you want top see replace Foodville!

The San Carlos Foodville Market stands closed, its windows darkened. Peer through the misnight tint and you'll catch a vague glimpse of an empty shell of a building.

San Carlos Patch wants to know: what would you like to see in its place?

What business does downtown Laurel Street need that could go here? A bowling alley for kids? A small movie theater? Maybe another daycare? What do you want to see occupy the old Foodville spot?

This is your city; let us know in the comment what youd like to see!

To Kenny Porpora: L E above stated the owners plan to tear it down and buid an awful structure like that one on M& L. Is this true? If so, why ask the question.

If the owners do not tear it down, I would like to have bookstore in town. Even though we all have gadgets, It is nice to buy, hold and read a real book. A full rack of magazines and newspapers from all over the world since we are so diverse and free wi-fi for those that cannot be without it :-)

I have no kids, and I even agree with that.

I think Town should move out of its current space into that larger space and then re-open A Tavola with the original menu including the spinach/mushroom crepe. Make it happen Avenir! I'd also make at least 1/3 of the restaurant into bar space and increase the high end part of the wine list since they'd have more space.

There was a plan to do a, "1001 Laurel" job on Wheeler Plaza, but the state shut down the Redevelopment Agencies and funds. My guess is they're back to the drawing boards. In addition to Foodville, the Lane Furniture store is another huge vacant building in limbo. Last time I drove by 1001 Laurel, I didn't see any businesses open on the street level. It's amazing what a bad economy and NO parking can do to retail space, let's hope SC doesn't repeat that mess.
