What Should Go Here?

This week we take you to Shamrock Plaza. And the site of an old Blockbuster store that closed a few years ago. What should replace it?

When North Druid Hills-Briarcliff Patch had no job nearly four years ago, we wanted to work at a movie rental store. We watch a lot of movies anyway. We didn't need much money back then, the economy was a horror show and we were working on other things. We desired only part-time work.

Even though we lived in Decatur proper, our quest to work in the movie rental industry took us to Shamrock Plaza – until about two years ago, the site of a decent Blockbuster where we were almost named some sort of shift manager. We don't really remember what happened there. Regardless, we wouldn't have been employed long anyway. The store was closed down as Blockbuster found its profits squeezed across the country by Netflix, Redbox, the Internet and cable television.

Last week, we . So, now, we ask you, dear readers, what should open up in Blockbuster's stead at 3934 North Druid Hills Rd.? Another retail store? A restaurant? Tell us in the comments section below.

I also,would love to see a local pub with a different style food other than "bar food". Maybe some live music.

Hancock Fabrics can move over to Shamrock Plaza when they get kicked out of Suburban Plaza.

That a great idea, but is that store as big as its current location? They will truly be missed!
