I wouldn't mind a great little Vietnamese sandwich shop, or a full service Halal butcher.

I miss the days when the shopping center had a toy store, music shop, bookstore, shoe store, and a Sprouse-Ritz (a small actually department store) where you could be day-to-day clothes for men, women, and children, as well as material. I didn't have to leave town to buy everything I needed. Now the only "go to" place there is ACE. I don't like the tobacco shop and check cashing stores.... think they contribute to the higher rate of violent crime
