Food Beats Shoes as Replacement for Giant Eagle
Readers have lots of good ideas on how to use space if supermarket relocates next year
Trader Joe's and Whole Foods were the most popular suggestions for what should fill the Giant Eagle store at Westfield SouthPark if the supermarket relocates to Pearl Road next year.
"Whole Foods or Trader Joe's would be amazing!" Kelly Sheredy wrote.
Giant Eagle announced plans last month to build a 90,000-square-foot superstore on the site of Strongsville Golf and Honey Hut on Pearl Road. Voters have to approve a rezoning on part of the property in March for the project to go forward.
Yesterday, Strongsville Patch asked readers for suggestions on what should move into the current 60,000-square-foot Giant Eagle building if it does move.
"A large men's club, such as Crazy Horse but bigger. An indoor rifle and pistol range, steak house, and Internet cafe -- all under one roof! It would be so AWESOME! Think of the jobs/revenue that would create. Heck, I'd live there!" Winston Smith posted.
"Either a Sam Ash music store, whose closest store is in Lynhurst, or a Guitar Center music store, whose closest stores are in North Olmsted and Fairlawn," Jeff Poor suggested.
"A traffic light at that intersection in front of it," Dan Sparks wrote on Facebook. "And maybe a Gander Mountain."
