The Granbys Patch has our Visions For Vacancies column up and running.
In this feature, we show Patch users empty buildings and storefronts in Granby and East Granby and ask what you want to see fill those spaces.
Do you want a specialty shop catering to your favorite hobby in your hometown? Do you think there’s a type of business Granby or East Granby needs to have inside its borders?
This is your chance to share your ideas and have them seen by public officials, local entrepreneurs and other community members who read The Granbys Patch. Your idea may be the inspiration for a prospective local business owner — maybe you’ll even see the perfect location for the small business you’ve always wanted to open!
The former restaurant on Mill Pond Road, next to Dunkin Donuts and near Stop and Shop, is shuttered and could be a great location for a local business. The rest of the plaza where the space is located has thriving businesses and surrounding storefronts are all full as well.
What type of business would you like to see move into that space? Tell us in the comments and bounce your ideas off of each other!
Is there a specific empty spot you’d like to see highlighted in Visions for Vacancies in the coming weeks? Send a message to Perry Robbin, local editor of The Granbys Patch, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
