Visions for Vacancies: Reisterstown Shopping Center

What would you like to see occupy the blank concrete pad at the Reisterstown Shopping Center?

The Reisterstown Shopping Center's almost a year ago. In May, the community rejoiced when the shopping center's old Exxon gas station, which had been vacant for more than a decade, .

What remains is a blank concrete pad behind a fence. Over the years, that strip housed a bowling alley, an arcade, a bagel shop and many more businesses. What do you think should go there?

What sort of business do you think would you like to see in this space? Tell us in the comments.

Is there a commercial vacancy you'd like to discuss? If so be sure to email editor Marc Shapiro (marc.shapiro@patch.com) and maybe it will be featured in the next Visions for Vacancies.

I think a bowling alley and a gas station would be a nice mix...and maybe a Food Fair and White Coffee Pot.

I would like to see small independent (local) stores instead of large chain stores. Frederick Rd in Catonsville has had a lot of success with stores like Atwaters, Objects Found, independent record stores, etc. Most of the large stores mentioned are already reasonable close in out area. Trader Joe's is in Pikesville, Reisterstown would be awfully close for another one, Panera too and Sonic in Randallstown.

Liquor stores or gas station. There are not enough of those on Reisterstown Road.

I vote PANERA!!! Pikesville is horrendous and the next closest is Westminster or sykesville.... But I heard it was to be a sonic and something else restaurant wise...
