Did the Closing of Best Buy Leave a Ghost Town in North Logan Commons?

There are a number of "For Lease" signs and empty store fronts in North Logan Commons, Loganville, the center that was once home to Best Buy. What would you like to see locate in the center?

Since Best Buy in North Logan Commons in Loganville went out of business, signs have been popping up all over, but not the kind of signs you want to see. There are more "Space for Lease" signs than just for Best Buy. ChinaStar Buffet has since gone out of business and other store fronts next to restaurant, that once held so much promise for a new business to set up, still have the "For Lease" signs up."

Residents learned in April that the in the North Logan Commons Center was one of the across the United States. It was one of two that closed in Georgia. By the end of May the store was empty and the doors closed for good. Best Buy plans to revamp its retail model, beginning by closing a number of its big-box retail locations and opening small-scale mobile locations throughout the United States. One of those mobile outlets is already up and running at the Northlake Mall in Tucker, Ga.

Although , , and are still anchor stores in the center, Best Buy was one of the key anchors.

What would you like to see in the Best Buy store to help attract other businesses to fill the empty stores?

Trader Joe's, Whole Foods or Aldi would be my top picks. Kohl's would be nice too and certainly a movie theatre. Target needs to come here soon and I wouldn't be surprised to hear that plans are already in the works for that. Of course, the old Ingles location has been sitting vacant for far too long too, but I'm guessing the current Ingles wouldn't be agreeable to Trader Joe's, Whole Foods or Aldi coming in there...

Loganville needs a movie theater or playhouse. I would also like to see a Stein Mart, Dress Barn, Kohl's, Target, Newk's Cafe (very popular and very few), Chipotle's, a BBQ restaurant, Charming Charlie's, Claire's . . .

I think a movie theatre is a fantastic idea!! whole foods would be a great second. Our city council needs to contact these merchants and try to build up Loganville, they are wanting us to buy local so go out there and get us some good shops to go to!!
