The former Salvation Army thrift store on Main Street stands vacant, with more than 14,000 square feet of space for rent. What businesses or organizations would you like to see move in?
What you said on Napa Patch:
Maybe a drug store? There is nothing like that downtown.
I know it's too romantic for this economy but wouldn't a bookstore be great?
Apple store, Best Buy, or a Nordstrom's men's shop.
A large video arcade, or a pinball museum.
A museum or maybe some type of recreational center.
I like the idea of a museum in half the space and for the other half, satellite classes for Napa Valley College. If not an art gallery?
Starbucks! Jeff Flanders
How about a "vintage"/"antique" co-op! Ok then, I'll settle for a ice skating/roller rink for families! How about another bowling ally - can't get into the one we have, always full up! Pat Mclaughlin
Pat, we love the idea for a roller rink! NapaBike ()
should expand; they have plenty of inventory! Brenda Hensley
99 cent store! Leslie Hyde
As an architect I would love to see the front facade restored. The space presents itself well to be divided up into smaller retail spaces - each bay could be a space with a common loading dock in the rear. The spaces I think should be retail to create a northern border or edge to Main St. I think the retail will give a good blend to the restaurants and tasting rooms in the vicinity. Paul Kelley
Michael's Craft Store! Terry Rond Kent
Ice Skating Rink. Probably too small though. Terry Rond Kent
The Salvation Army! Becky Tyner
