What Should Replace Local Sweetbay Supermarkets?
The large grocery store closed its doors this week. What would you like to see take its place?
Now that both local Sweetbay stores have closed, attention has turned to what to do with the large, empty retail spaces left behind.
On the Weschase Patch Facebook page, users seemed to favor seeing one of three retailers move in to the space.
Beth Padgett Edwards voted for a Total Wine.
Tylene Guy Headley, Heather Long, Christina Rio Patterson and Leslie Blaze all commented that they would like to see a Fresh Market move in.
Some users also mentioned that a Whole Foods or a Trader Joe's would be nice to have nearby.
