The Village at Pine has a variety of stores—is something missing?
A storefront in the Village at Pine has opened up and we're wondering what you think should go there. Planet Pittsburgh was the former tenant, but now the space is empty. The storefront is bordered by All That Jazz and Quest Diagnostics in the popular Pine Township shopping plaza that also includes Market District and several restaurants. Wexford Dry Goods recently opened a store close by. So what would be a good business to locate in the busy center? Does anyone dare to try opening a bookstore in these days of Kindles and Nooks? What about a children's clothing store? We need your suggestions. What business do you think should locate in the fomer Planet Pittsburgh storefront? Leave your suggestions in the Comments section below. …

The 5,000-square-foot building is easy to access off Route 8 in Richland Township.
The big, blue, building on Bakerstown Road is, quite literally, in the shadow of Route 8 in Richland Township.

What sort of business do you think should go here? Tell us in the …

Pretend you have a magic wand and anything is possible. What business do you imagine in this space?
The long white building beside the railroad tracks in Richland Township has an empty and lonely existence—but what are the possibilities? In front of it, cars zip along busy Route 910 (Gibsonia Road). Beside it is are railroad tracks. Up the hill is Rudolph's Auto Repair. Across the tracks is Computer Literates. Look across the road and you'll see an empty field with hints of goldenrod. If you could imagine a business here, what would it be? Motorists who pass by it every day head to I-79 or Route 19 to the west. Just a short distance away is Route 8 to the east. For the busy commuter, would a place that makes carry-out meals be a stopping point? Hungry motorists could stop on the way home from work, pick up a meal and put it on the …
