What Business Should Welcome Collings Ave. Visitors?
An empty storefront at Collings Avenue and the White Horse Pike needs a new tenant. What do Patch readers think should go there?
For more than 50 years, Crosstown Dry Cleaners stood at the entrance to Collingswood’s Collings Avenue business district. But its closure last year left a vacancy that has yet to be filled.
In our latest Visions for Vacancy installment, we turn to you, Collingswood, to tell us what business you’d like at the corner of Collings Avenue and the White Horse Pike.
The empty store—with large glass windows and parking in the rear (or sometimes the sidewalk, if you dare)—shares a building with Sorrento Pizza and a Laundromat.
It’s just a hop, skip and jump away from a bank of other Collings Avenue businesses, including a hair salon, frame shop and restaurants with Chinese, Indian and Italian cuisines. The Heights of Collingswood across the street provides something of a built-in customer base.
So what type of business would work there best? Does Collings Avenue need its own coffee shop? Bookstore? Boutique? Leave your thoughts in the comments.
