Aquidneck Islanders sometimes joke about anything that requires a trip off the Island. People, it seems, would like to stay right here in town for all their needs. To do a little retail matchmaking, we'll post an image of an empty storefront from time to time and ask you to tell us what business you think would be perfect in that location.
Here's the first one: the 25,000 square foot space in the Middletown Square shopping center at 1315 West Main Road. Originally, it held Linens 'n Things, but that national retailer moved out a couple years ago, and since then, the space has held only temporary or seasonal occupants, such as costume shops or fireworks vendors.
What business would you like to see in this spot?
