this is to the residents of st augustine:

what do you think the town needs in terms of businesses? what does it have too much of and could never need one again?

what is seriously lacking in the area? what is the town over saturated with?

very very curious! thank you so much for your responses

I think they could use a small grocery in either Uptown or Lincolnville. Some place to grab milk and bread, etc without having to actually go to the mainland.

No need for more touristy gift shops selling the same tired crap.

I agree with previous poster that a small, upscale grocery would do well, esp if carried fresh breads, desserts, basic produce, cheeses and a deli with quality take out meals even the college kids could afford and tourists could get picnic items or locals "to go" creative breakfast items (and cheap, good coffees).

I also think St Augustine could support an excursion bus line for weekend connections to airports in JAX and DAB or local day trips to regional parks, springs, hikes, etc. for locals and tourists -- or bring tourists from Orlando for day trips.

The St Augustine Historical Society/Library and FPAN-NE are both tremendous academic resources for historic/archeology that have gone untapped for local tours to a specific global market interested in scholarly experiences, culture and history (not found on a tram tour).

St Augustine enjoys casual fine dining and entertaining. Having affordable monthly "theme" events with guest chefs, food product promos, wine tastings, food tastings, local food growers, tableware/chef tools, etc., would be a fun night out socializing for both local residents, restaurantuers and retailers (like St George Dinnerware).
