I moved here in 99. I've seen many changes, Safeway, Starbucks etc. A bagel shop would be nice here, with good coffee to boot. HA!

I remember some coffee shop that had people playing guitar outside at the former Nicks when I moved here. Why do cool things leave?

A bagel shop with GOOD coffee, that's the winning ticket. They have to have strawberry creamcheese too. HA!

Main thing is, you wouldn't be able to get their chicken. The best. Gas is gas. Go for the cheapest. Same as generic drugs, store brand acetaminophen, aspirin, milk, juice, whatever.

You should probably start planning what you would like to see at the 7-11 spot. Don't see them being there too long after Royal Farms opens.
