Visions for Vacancies: Mobil Station on Bridgeport Ave

What kind of business or building could use this vacant space?

Located on Bridgeport Avenue next to WalMart and across from Giove's Pizza, this former Mobil gas station has been in a state of disuse for quite a while. There isn't a ton of room for parking, but there is easy access onto and off of the plot.

What business would you like to see in this spot? What would be a good addition to the already busy Bridgeport Avenue?

How about a nail salon because Shelton doesn't have enough of them? But seriously, how about a dozen each of rhododendron and azaleas? What in God's name could fit there and what business owner are we to take seriously for choosing to put a business there?

I would imagine the site requires some expensive clean up to be anything other than a gas station.

If i had the money to invest i would love to open a retail store for scrap booking supplies, parties, fundraisers, night out crops, etc. There aren't any places around here anymore that provide that.

How about maybe a new resonably priced gas station? That entire road from Center Street to Huntington has only 2 gas stations, Shell, which is grossly over priced, and Gulf, which is always too crowded because of the store, Dunkin, and Wendy's.

I agree, a reasonable priced gas station would be perfect there!

Covered free standing coin stations where cars can pull in to vacuum their interiors, check tire pressure, and put air in their tires. For those people who live in condos and apartments you can’t really find any convenient areas where you can do that unless you pay to have your car washed, or drive around to find a gas station with free spot. Down south they have these all over the place and they were always busy.

That is a great idea!

A Buffalo Wild Wings or Chowder Pot type seafood restaurant...

Whole Foods Market. Check out the one in Fairfield. Highend food, fruits, vegetables and etc. etc. It has excellent sercice and quality items.

That would be the smallest Whole Foods ever...and no parking spots.
