Now that Skaff’s Corner Pharmacy has vacated its longtime downtown storefront for greener pastures on St. Georges Avenue, it leaves vacant a prominent space at the corner of East Cherry and Main streets.
So, loyal readers, what would you like to see move into this space? It’s quite the key spot downtown with significant visibility on both East Cherry and Main streets. Keep in mind, it was home to a pharmacy for many years so there might be some limitations without serious renovations (such as anything food related), and there are apartments on the upper floors. No word on what the asking rent is or precisely how much square footage.
We’ve had a liquor store open on Main Street within the past year, and an eatery earlier this year just a few doors down, so what else would you like to see downtown? They’re a little stale but to get the brainstorming, started, check out the Rahway Survey results form 2008.
The last time we tried the “What would you like to see in this space?” game, there were a few good comments and soon after our discussion, Taria Reed Photography took over the space at 69 E. Cherry St. and is still there.
