Visions For Vacancies: Staples to Close November 2

Staples Rt 6 Bristol

Periodically, I’ll feature a commercial building that is for lease or for sale and asks you to tell me what you think would be the best use for it.

Forget what zone it’s in, ignore setback regulations, dump lot coverage rules and all the other zoning jargon that puts most people to sleep. If you had your way, what would you like to see there?

What would be the best use for the community?

This Visions For Vacancies is the soon to be former Staples on Rt. 6.

The company announced they will close the store on November 2.

Staples has approximately 24,000 SF of first floor retail space available, plus approximately 17,000 SF of second floor office space.

This space is a great retail opportunity on busy Farmington Avenue in Bristol, which is the main retail corridor in the area.

This building was also awarded an Energy Star label in 2011 for its operating efficiency.

So, what would you like to see there?

Tell me on the Bristol Roundup Facebook page.

Know of a vacant building I should highlight? Let me know!

Visions For Vacancies is only the featured name of this series of posts and does not necessarily mean the highlighted property is vacant.
