This place has been empty for awhile and we need it open and thriving.
Here are my requests:
*competitively priced gas
*good selection of local and regional newspapers, maybe throw in the NY Times too
*local lore has it that someone used to actually make donuts at this location and that they were the best around - fresh donuts would be a big draw to both locals and travellers - but I understand if you can't do that
This location is right in town, right near post office, public library, laundromat, across the street from a grocery store. During the summer and all holidays a lot of traffic, including bicycle tour groups, comes through town to and from coast.
Place a few picnic tables outside. Add a community bulletin board. Maybe add a booth or two inside. Listen to customers about what they want in brews and snacks and other goodies.
