Visions For Vacancies: Friendly's
What would you like to see done with the former Friendly's location in Stoughton at the corner of Washington and Lincoln Streets?
Drive around Stoughton and you'll notice a number of empty storefronts and buildings.
We're continuing a new series titled "Visions for Vacancies." We'll showcase an empty storefront and ask you what should take up the space.
Last week we started things off by asking what you would like to see done with the Stoughton Train Station.
This week, we turn our attention to the former Friendly's location in Stoughton at the corner of Washington and Lincoln Streets, adjacent to Shaw's Plaza.
Even though Friendly's was a popular gathering spot in town for many years, it was one of 63 "underperforming restaurants" closed in October 2011 after the Wilbraham, MA-based Friendly Ice Cream Corporation filed for Chapter 11 Bankruptcy.
What would you like to see take its place? Bring back Friendly's? Open another ice cream parlor or another restaurant, diner or coffee shop? Turn it into retail space instead?
