What Business Should Move Into Greer's?

The downtown storefront is now demolished, so the possibilities are practically endless.

The Greer storefront at 87 Peachtree St. and new construction is expected in the upcoming months.

Owner David Greer said lots of business owners have shown interest in occupying it, but nothing has been set in stone yet.

Any type of commercial retail business could move in, so Norcross Patch wants to know: What would you like to see move into the Historic Downtown Norcross area?

A new ice cream shop, a clothing boutique, another restaurant or something else entirely? Vote in the poll below.

Have a more elaborate answer? Leave it in the comments.

I want Al Karnitz, Terry Bowie, and Alex to start a model/antique train shop, with lots of branded Norcross stuff (sweatshirts, hats, etc.). Just my two cents, love spending other people's money.

I think we need a Starbucks.

I loved reading all the comments because I think all too often landlords jump too quickly at the first offer because in an economy like this we all see building after building sitting empty as a landlord myself it's agonizing losing money due to an empty space. With that being said I agree about the build-out of another restaurant in light of their special requirements. Once a restaurant location always a restaurant location. Too expensive to change. I love the idea of consignment/retail where multiple creative people could all join forces - something like Queen of Hearts, Buford and Alpharetta. They are extremely successful and it would work here as well. I'm ready to sign on the dotted line and make it happen.

Does anyone know if there will be rear access to this space? It doesn't look like it from what I can tell. That would be extremely difficult for a restaurant. I like the idea of multi-tenant to share the financial burden as mentioned by Neva. It doesn't matter to me whether it's art, food, used stuff, or collectibles - just has to be interesting and not done by the big chains on 141.

@ Lynn White, You said, 'Once a restaurant location always a restaurant location. Too expensive to change. I love the idea of consignment/retail where multiple creative people could all join forces - something like Queen of Hearts, Buford and Alpharetta. They are extremely successful and it would work here as well. I'm ready to sign on the dotted line and make it happen.' I agree. A big box store needs to be broken into spaces 8X8, 10X10, 12X12 so they can share the rent, since its way too big for one retail space. The City of Norcross Downtown area, really needs more retail to balance itself. Retail stores need shoppers and even more retail business to generate money, in order, to be successful. And also, now, we have 9 restaurants, and this building is located next door to an already established restaurant. Our restaurant-pie is getting cut into small pieces. So, who can make any money, with that being their main service?
