The space next to Andre's Banquet & Catering is closed and empty, so we want to know: What kind of business do you want to see move in?
The shopping plaza on Telegraph Road near Forder Road is becoming more and more of a destination. Andre's Banquets and Catering brings parties, weddings and events to the center. Dunkin' Donuts just opened a new store there. And Comic Headquarters draws comics lovers from all over, especially on Free Comic Book Day. But the business at 4242 Telegraph Road is just a big empty square with a makeshift cardboard sign: "Closed for business." The last business to occupy the space was Ride the Rails billiards bar. So we want to hear from those who know Mehlville best: What kind of business should move into that empty spot? What would compliment the other businesses in the area? What do we need? Leave your comments in the section below!
