Really depends on available parking. If there is not enough parking, almost nothing that generates a lot of clients at one time will work here, space may only be good for office tenant

F. Yanez, Apple store? Really?! I was just at the one in Stoneridge and I never, EVER recall it being less than half packed with people. If an Apple store ever opened on the boulevard, I think traffic would definitely be an ongoing issue (even after the construction ends).. but the idea of not having to travel too far for Apple products would be cool =)

Karen, true. There isn't much parking spots on CV Blvd. but I know there's parking lots in the back of these stores, along San Carole Ave.

I guess when I started doing these, I kind of had the hopes of a reader stumbling upon an empty storefront featured in this column and then say, "Hey! that'd be a perfect place to open my business!"

At on time there was a plan afloat to connect all these little parking lots behind the buildings along the boulevard and make one big lot from which all the merchants would benefit. I'm not sure what happened to it but I suspect it was killed by the "not in my backward" tribe. Some people just can't seem to see the big picture.
