What Should Replace Latin America Groceries' Space?

Patch wants to hear your ideas for filling Parsippany's vacant business buildings.

Time again for Patch's game of what-if regarding business vacancies in the township.

This time around, let's consider the now-empty Latin America Groceries building at 299 Parsippany Road. The storefront looks, well, deserted. Brown paper partially covers the commercial building's windows. And the endeavors that until recently occupied the space—among them, the market, Arnold Travel, Medina Business Enterprises and phone services company Mobile Tek—have left barely a trace behind. This is a spot that clearly needs to be filled, and possibly, by a business that will serve Parsippany's Spanish-speaking community.

What do you think would work for Latin America Groceries' former space? Tell us what you would like to see in the comments. We will take your suggestions and pass them along to the town's economic development chief, Mayor James Barberio.

Maybe the landlord should invest and clean / modernize the store front to attract a business. In its current state - not sure any viable business would want to move in based on the pictures shown in this article.

Where the heck was this place?? I agree with Jeff... I live off of Parsippany road and i've never noticed this place. How about a darn (good) BAGEL/BAKE SHOP, because we certainly don't need another nail salon or pizza place.

I agree and good bagel shop in the lake area would be great! I would also like to see a Boston Market move in to Parsippany.

I would like to see Montclair State University create an off-campus, policial-science research entity at this site. The professors and students involved in the program could study bloated, ineffective government and the waste of taxpayers' money. It could be named The John Cesaro & Ann Grossi Center for Tax and Spend Government.

A soup and gourmet sandwhich shop. Everything homemade.
