What Should Replace Sappington Farmers' Market?

What business would you like to see go in to the former market? We've heard rumblings about Aldis, Trader Joes and other grocers.

As the its doors, residents prepare warily for the shuttered, empty, dusty storefront that feels ubiquitous in today's struggling economic climate.

So we want to know: What business makes you cross your fingers and hope they'll move in to the spot?

We've heard a few rumblings around town, especially from the residents who have longed for a Trader Joe's grocery store for some time. Should the next tennant be another grocery store? Is there another business that fits better?

This is an ideal location for a Trader Joe's! It would be convenient to the communities of Affton, Shrewsbury, Webster Groves and Marlborough. Trader Joe's is renowned for being a "community-friendly" business. Kudos to the staff of the Affton-Shrewsbury Patch newsletter for initiating this column titled Vision for Vacancies. It is an ideal communications vehicle to let potential business owners know what sort of "community-friendly" businesses area residents want to have and would gladly support!

Trader Joe's PLEASE. Also I like JS's idea above about local produce.

Petition signing at General Grant Car Wash is postponed until Friday from 10am-2pm. Please, send some positive vibes for a little Sunshine. See you then!

Trader Joe's at the Farmer's Market Site and Aldi at the the Save-A-Lot site would do wonders for Affton residents. Joni Kroeger
