I agree with M. The big stores are already in the surrounding towns. My husband asked about a dollar store years ago and the plaza management told him their plaza was too upscale for that! I think something the area needs is more family friendly businesses. Something like bowling, video games, there is a place in Meredith called Funspot, something like that would be great! There is not enough for young people in town. We had movies and a bowling alley years ago.

I would love to see a Trader Joes, Wegmans, or Whole Foods in the old Shaws spot to diversify the grocery options in town. I agree with others that a coffee house (eg Starbucks) with ample seating and wifi would be great. Maybe in the Baja Fresh spot?

The space would be good for an Aldi's. It's 8 miles from their nearest store in Medford.

Construction going on in the former Lindt Factory Outlet location. Anyone hear anything about what's going on there? I won't hold my breath for something to move into the old Shaw's building. I go to Shaw's in Wakefield. It's nice and spacious, therefore better-equipped to handle large crowds, and several people who worked at the Stoneham location are now there. Stop & Shop is always a zoo. Especially the so-called "solution center". I get in line just to play lottery, and the people ahead of me in line are placing money orders, plus, there is only one employee on duty there. It never fails.
