Since we are getting alot of newer brand name stores coming here, like Dick's Sporting Goods and Khols.

What other stores do you wish would come down here? It can be any store from any part of the country.

For me, I'd like to see Sonic's, Red Robin's and Jack in the Box come to South FL.

You guys have any?

Yep, TJ's is it for me.

I could live here happily for the rest of my life if they opened a few of those around....sigh.

Moved away and not living there now..but moving back soon.

TRADER JOES all the way!! Been after them since moved down there in 99. It is in the future plans but they will not ever tell you that. They opened one in Greenville,SC recently. When you call to ask they were even saying no plans to open stores in Greenville...even a week before store opened LOL.

Would love a Jack-in-the -box as well.

There are Friendly's down there look at their webste for locations. Delray,Boynton & Royal Palm. Went to the one in Royal Palm on State Rd. 7 I believe in 2005 it was great.

Would love White Castle too. But that will not happen.

What is Trader Joe's? I've never heard of that place.

We have Krystal's down here, so I doubt White Castle will ever come.

For starters, I wish they would STOP building stores like Kohls. The last thing we need is another Kohls. How many low-end retail stores do we need here? Do we really need one on every intersection of Broward County?

I would like to see some inexpensive restaurants with great food that have outdoor decks. Zona Fresca is one of the few that fit this criteria, but we have plenty of Soutwestern themed restaurants. I'd like to see them open some Creole places and Asian places similar to that where there is an indoor and outdoor section with music. Also, with food prices averaging around $8-12 for dinner.

There is no reason why every restaurant has to cost $17 per meal for dinner. The food is usually not worth it.
