How About a Cooperative Department Store?
Here is the ideal spot for development in Saranac Lake. The area bounded by Broadway, Bloomingdale Ave, Cedar St and Margaret St. It's an eyesore in the middle of town, is located near the Union Depot, but evidently consists of lots owned by several different people. It's within walking distance of a large number of residents and if the train ever runs from Utica to SL you could even cheaply ship goods on the train. Wouldn't it be wonderful to locate a community department store based upon a cooperative venture. A forward looking community might discuss the possibility of such a venture and even search for State or Federal Funding to purchase land and put up a building to lease.
