Vision for Vacancy: What Should Fill Storefront That Planet Pittsburgh Vacated?

The Village at Pine has a variety of stores—is something missing?

A storefront in the Village at Pine has opened up and we're wondering what you think should go there.

Planet Pittsburgh was the former tenant, but now the space is empty. 

The storefront is bordered by All That Jazz and Quest Diagnostics in the popular Pine Township shopping plaza that also includes Market District and several restaurants.

Wexford Dry Goods recently opened a store close by.

So what would be a good business to locate in the busy center? 

Does anyone dare to try opening a bookstore in these days of Kindles and Nooks? What about a children's clothing store? 

We need your suggestions. What business do you think should locate in the fomer Planet Pittsburgh storefront?

Leave your suggestions in the Comments section below.

I think that Big Buck Sportsman shop could use a little competition. Dicks sporting goods has limited its supply of Modern Sporting Rifles and with firearm sales skyrocketing I think a outdoor shop would be a good fit. The market is there with the PA state game lands and their newly remodeled shooting ranges in nearby Wexford, and the open lands of Butler County for hunting.

Thanks, Joshua, for the suggestion. That would definitely fill a void in the area.

Flower Shop, Chiropractor, or Dollar store

Now that the Wine and Spirits store is under construction, the only thing that shopping center does not have is a STARBUCKS......I would LOVE to see one i that spot!!
