Visions For Vacancies: Old Family Dollar Location
What would you like to see done with the old Family Dollar location at 605 Washington St. in Stoughton?
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 asked what you would like to see done with the former state theater/Stoughton Cinema Pub in the downtown.
This week, we turn our attention to the old Family Dollar store location at 605 Washington St. (adjacent to the STOYAC Community Football Field and behind the Citizens Bank Plaza).
Family Dollar didn't leave town - instead they expanded when the store moved to a larger location nearby at 525 Washington St. in the space formerly occupied by the Royal Buffet Chinese Restaurant and Kidsports.
But what would you like seen done with its former storefront left vacant as a result of the February 2012 move?
Keep it as retail space? Open another bargain/discount store? Turn it into a restaurant, diner or coffee shop? Use it as office space?
