What Should Replace Neff's of Napa?

The venerable office-supply store on Second Street is closing its doors for good. There's still time to grab some bargains on everything from sticky notes to file cabinets, but what comes next? Share your visions for this downtown Napa vacancy.

Sticky notes, note cards, card files, file folders, rubber fingertips, bills of lading, calligraphy supplies, pencils and pens, cheeky lapel buttons, drafting tools:

carries all these office supplies and many more — including origami paper, sketchbooks, stickers and keychains — in almost bewildering profusion, even now that its pre-closing sale is beginning to clear some space on the shelves.

After Neff's is emptied of its goods and fixtures next month, what should come next to its longtime location at 1407 Second St. downtown?

What kind of business would you like to see there? Share your visions for this downtown vacancy in our comments section.

Honestly, I haven't gone in there either. I do get my nails done at Napa Nails, also on that Second St. next to Neff's. I just always see it across the street while I'm in the shop.
