Your Ideas Here: Space in Trappe Shopping Center

What new business should move to this spot?

In a shopping center that already has room for a grocery store and a couple restaurants in business, what should set up shop in this space in the Trappe Shopping Center?

What do you need in a local space? What would succeed here?

A Home Depot or Lowe's, a Trader Joe's, or a Walmart! We don't have any of them nearby!

Home Depot or Walmart would create a traffic nightmare. Another grocer chain won't move in because others have failed in that location and nearby. Sad but true.

Something for the young folks, maybe a skating rink or movie theater or some type of gym?

How about Dave & Buster's, similiar to the one in Plymouth Mtg Mall.

I would like to see a roller skating rink. The space is large enough. The food prep and bakery area would be a good spot for a snack bar, and there is plenty of parking. It could offer birthday parties, roller hockey leagues, teen skates, senior citizen skating socials, skating lessons, community fundraisers, etc. This could also bring new patrons to the exisitng businesses and encourage new ones to open such as a coffee shop, bakery, jewelry shop, gift shop, clothing stores and more. There are so few activities for teens in this area, I'm sure this would be a winner!

Or even an aldis. All the others are far away. We could use a Super Walmart.

The potential lender or investor will want to see a marketing plan for your new product before making a commitment. Developing a marketing plan also gives you the opportunity to organize your thoughts and discover any trouble spots in your strategy. Thanks a lot.

Let's go with Trader Joe's!

Umm, there is no way a Lowe's, Home Depot or Wal-Mart would locate there because it simply isn't big enough. Thank god there can't be a Wal-Mart. The shopping center just got a hardware store so that solves that. Also, a big supermarket will not try to compete with Giant, Redners and Wegmans, all around the corner basically. All we really need is some sort of small grocer, like a Trader Joes or an indoor farmers market. It would be nice for the Collegeville Farmers Market to move there permanently, as I hardly even go to it in the summer because of the heat and sun. Skating rink sounds cool, but again, not enough space. Some sort of smaller kids attraction, similar to a Jungle Wonder could work though. Movie theater is also out. You have to think from the potential business' perspective. It is only a viable location for smaller business, no large stores or big box retailers.
