Called out - Kirst is a Mindreader...

As I toured the far end of Terry Rd. this morning, I saw a beautiful sight: an OPEN sign in neon, and newly painted parking stripes on the lot of the newest "geddes" area development. Renee's Salon is the first tenant of the new commercial building that occupies the land that this used to stand on:



Now I didn't have my camera at the ready, so I'll have to swing by there and grab a comparison pic tonight. What a turn around though. And to see it come to fruition has been wonderful. A dump turned into an oasis.

I've been thinking about leasing one of the spots in there and opening up a coffee shop, and small book store. What do you think? Worth the investment? Would you stop in for a cup of fair-trade coffee, free wi-fi with any purchase, and a small collection of books to peruse and purchase? Speaking of investments, any angel investors out there with some start up money? (heh heh).

I agree with Sean, the stone work and landscaping really works for me too.

Like I said, pics later.

What a difference, huh? I am excited to see what fills in the other shops. I think that this building should be a big hit overall, and has brightened Taunton Corners.

If you set up an imaginary coffeeshop, will you sell my imaginary magazine (Upstate Life)?

I will personally buy the first 100 customers a prescription!

Has anyone been in the building yet? Just wondering what was upstairs. Offices maybe?

I finally laid eyes on this new building myself on my way to the dentist this morning. Looks great.

And, as your customers would need some serious drugs in order to believe that Upstate Life is a real magazine, I thank you for offering to buy them prescriptions! :-)

a bookstore - on the west side??? (Yes, I know there's the second hand one in Westvale but how about one without rude people and that doesn't stink!) Sign me up! Somehow the powwers that be seem to think we don't read on the West side of Syracuse! They also don't think we craft either. Yet, go to Dewitt and there's an AC Moore and a Michael's just down the road from each other. I asked once in one of these stores why they don't open near us, their response, "the company has researched the west suburbs but there's just no market." Are they nuts! Well, sign me up for your bookstore, in fact, hire me - I'm ready! (and I actually read!)
