Visions for Vacancies: What Should Replace the Former Damon's?

The mayor said there's been some interest in the building, but Patch wants to know what Stow residents would like to see in the former Damon's.

Patch got an overwhelming response when readers weighed in on what anchor store residents would like to see in the and we want that feedback again on another vacant building. 

The Damon's off of Steels Corners Road at 4200 Steels Point Dr. near the has been vacant since October 2009. Mayor Sara Drew said there have been a few tenants interested in the property, but nothing official has come of the space yet. 

Fifty people lost jobs when the restaurant closed. 

"The restaurant, which opened in 2002, had been 'under performing' for the past two years, according to Denise Reinert-McKeown, of G&R Management Services, the company that runs the Columbus-based Damon's International," according to an 2009 Akron Beacon Journal story

What would you like to see at the former Damon's? Tell everyone in the comments! (Who knows, maybe those businesses are watching ... )

For someone who can't use their real name I can't value your opinion. There are clearly too many establishments with bars in Stow given its population. There are many families that would like a choice here in Stow that don't include alchohol. I have been very open about my background including my experience in business. How about you?

We need a Trader Joe's closer to us!! I'm actually surprised it's taken so long to fill that building, with the great highway access and visibility it has!

I would like to see Piada expand up here, right now all their locations are in Columbus. They are an Italian-style pasta version of Chipotle - and they are Delicious! http://www.mypiada.com/ But I would settle for a BD's Mongo BBQ or Dave & Busters. Both would be pretty attractive to the local college crowds. The latter would require much more space than the Damon's location though I expect.
