Readers Sound Off on South River Colony Vacancies
Many readers commented that they would like to see an Italian restaurant fill a vacant storefront in South River Colony.
Last week, Edgewater-Davidsonville Patch asked readers what businesses they would like to see fill empty storefronts in South River Colony, and the response was overwhelming.
More than 20 people sounded off in the comments section of the article, and even more weighed-in on Patch's Facebook page. Readers mentioned all sorts of businesses they want to see come to the area; however, the most popular request was an Italian restaurant.
Some readers also weighed in on the problems with South River Colony and the surrounding business area. Bill Bateman's Bistro went out of business in January after a year-and-a-half run. Rochelle Drucker commented that lack of exposure to the area was a problem.
Lynn Scherer Swager commented, "I believe the property owner is not doing the businesses there any favor. There is no appropriate marquis advertising the businesses that are there let alone draw in other businesses. The sign that is on Rt. 2 looks like it was made in someone's garage. There should be a lit marquis on 214 and Rt. 2."
