Fill This Space: Former Unleashed by Petco Store

Former Unleashed store at Hunters Woods

Hunters Woods Village Center now has two side-by-side vacancies in its stand-alone building at 2280 Hunters Woods Plaza.

One of the storefronts has not been occupied since the building was converted from Hollywood Video several years ago. The other housed Unleashed by Petco from 2012 until that store closed in late January.

What do you think should go in that spot? It can be two separate stores or one bigger one. Tell us your thoughts in the comments.

The vacancies are next to Dunkin’ Donuts.

Unleashed’s closing is one of several recent vacancies at the shopping center, which is owned by Edens. Dairy Queen and Solar Planet tanning salon at Hunters Woods closed this fall, and several other storefronts have remained vacant for more than a year.

The never-leased space was intended to be a Chinito’s Burritos, but the owner of that restaurant backed out in summer 2014 after financing could not be secured.

The most recent check of county permits shows no new tenants headed for Hunters Woods.

    a Books a Million would be great. It could take both spaces.

    Really no interest in what they put there. Not a very safe area

    I don’t think Edens has any interest in filling the vacant shops at Hunters Woods. If they wanted a fully occupied and vibrant center, they wouldn’t have run out the tailor, Dairy Queen, Lady of America, etc.

    It would be great to have a local, mom-and-pop kind of coffee shop.

    Why not an indoor 50-meter pool?

      Bocci World?

    A secondhand bookstore would be nice. Last I heard, though, the rents there were crazy-high and I don’t know how a secondhand bookstore could stay in business. Maybe if it was a combo bookstore and something else – coffee/snack/sandwich shop?

    I would love to see the Conservatory Ballet School take over these two spots! I feel that they are hidden in their current space! It would be so much more convenient for the parents and it would also get more clientele that way!
