Why did Giant Eagle not rebuild in Brecksville on Rt. 82 across the street? And why did we not address the VA site almost 10 years ago when the rumor of them leaving was brought up? Water under the bridge, let us move forward now! We have many resources and positive components to attract any company who wants excel their business. Let us create a master plan and tell the world about the business minded city, Brecksville, Ohio. One thing we should consider doing is the creation of mixed use companies at the VA site. For example, we attract large corporation, executive and professional companies alongside complimentary midsize retail, restaurants and commercial businesses all in close proximity. And to make things clear I am not talking not talking large box stores but the kind of companies that will enhance our overall economic development but maintain the quaintness Brecksville holds dear. A master plan for the VA, downtown and surrounding sites is necessary: and even if only temporarily an economic team to address these issues in greater detail, ASAP. This way we can get to a point that businesses like Trader Joe's, Buehler's and Whole Foods are knocking on Brecksville’s door.

Hmmm... Reminds me of how people use to talk in Avon, which was even more "quaint" than Brecksville. But now they have Avon Commons - with Target, Kohl's, Home Depot, Heinen's, IHOP,... Like Avon, Brecksville could go with a "Tarjay" and still maintain the upscale image.

Rachel- do they plan to accept Credit Cards? I don't carry cash (prefer my debit) and the limitation to cash/check only a Marc's is the single reason I don't go there. Thanks for checking!

That's number one on my list of questions, Mark! I'll definitely update readers as soon as I hear from Marc's.
