Visions for Vacancies: Blockbuster

What should replace the Blockbuster location on Lenox Ave.?

Drive around Norwood and you'll notice far too many empty storefronts and buildings.

This week, we're continuing our "Visions for Vacancies" series where we showcase an empty storefront in town and ask you what should take up the space.

This week, we ask you what should go in at the empty storefront on Lenox Ave. that used to be a Blockbuster location?

Blockbuster filed for bankruptcy in September of 2010. In 2011 Dish Network bought the chain, but had to close 500 of the remaining 1,500 stores earlier this year. The Norwood space is available for lease.

What do you think should go in the location? A retail store? A restaurant or fast-food joint? Tell us in comments!

How about an indoor baseball / softball facility?? Save families for going elsewhere the whole year and keep the $$ in Norwood

Since, Trader Joe's just opened in Foxboro. I think that rules Norwood out of the picture.
