What Should Replace Walgreens?

Patch wants to hear your ideas for filling Parsippany's vacant business buildings.

The recent move of Walgreens Pharmacy to the Baldwin Plaza Shopping Center gave the township a revitalized, bright and busy "new" drug store. It also left Parsippany with a big, empty space at 1470 Route 46 in Troy Hills Village, the old Walgreens digs.

Which makes this the perfect time for Patch's periodic guessing game regarding business vacancies in the township...

If you travel the township along Route 46, you've surely seen that big empty box where once there was light, traffic, commerce: What type of business can bring this space back to life? What do you think would work for Walgreens' former space? Tell us what you would like to see in the comments. We will take your suggestions and pass them along to the town's economic development chief, Mayor James Barberio.

oh wow.. I wasn't aware of that.. I wondered why it suddenly disappeared. that place use to be packed. Good thing Boonton has one, but I've never been there.

Hi Natalie, I'm a little confused. I know it says you'd pass our suggestions along to the mayor, but if an Indian grocery is already set for the location, then why are we discussing what we'd like to see there? I'm being sarcastic - I'm wondering if I've misread something.

oh dear, I meant to say I'm NOT being sarcastic. . That was one heck of a typo. whoops.

It disappeared because the owner was tried and convicted of child endangerment and his franchise license was revoked... http://law.justia.com/cases/federal/district-courts/new-jersey/njdce/2:2012cv03307/275047/22

DM Herinya, We got the news of the impending new occupant after publication. Since then, this has been a fun game of "what if" and a great place for folks opposed to the Waterview Plaza development proposal to vent. Can't speak for anyone else, but I enjoy reading people's thoughts in most instances.
