With less than two weeks to go, Bob Bayers is elbows deep in trying to liquidate all his remaining stock as he prepares to close the doors for a final time on Sept. 1. As he told Patch in an interview earlier this month, he's hardly got any time to think about much beyond that.
However, he and his family still own the building the store has occupied for 89 years, meaning at some point soon, Bayers will turn his attention to the future. Any final choice would be his and his family's, but Bayers has repeatedly said he wants to make sure that any future tennant of the former silent movie theater is a "good fit" for the 43rd and Upton business district.
So just what would be a "good fit" for 4312 Upton Avenue South? What is this part of Linden Hills missing, that could make the neighborhood better? Leave your answers in the comments section below!
