What sites have good listings in the Lehigh Valley/North Hampton area for commercial space (1200-1500sq ft)? I tried Craiglist already. Thanks

Your best bet is to go right to the MLS site or Loopnet. Or try company web sites that pull data from right from the MLS. I would start with Loopnet.

Yes, there are a couple. What type of strip mall do you want.

We are thinking about trying to open a Subway franchise. So a good location would be on a very busy road with parking and easy access. Is Scheonersville Road off of RT 22 a busy spot? There is a strip mall there with a Starbucks and Saladworks and there are some open spaces. If you have any ideas or suggestions on areas to look in please let me know. Thanks a lot!

Schoenersville may not be a bad spot, its a main thoroughfare with traffic all hours of day and night, if you open, you'll get Moravian college kids to buy there, no doubt, especially if you have late hours...

I think there is already a Subway in the Westgate mall on Schoenersville Rd...and a Quiznos somewhere a little closer towards Rt 22 on Schoenersville as well.

there is a new shopping center near the sheetz and wawa on Scheonersville with a Saladworks in it. I don't think it'd be a great place because people can get subs at Sheetz (next door), Wawa (across the street), and Quiznos is in a complex right next to wawa. It's also pretty far (4 miles?) from Moravian's campus. Now if you go further south on Scheonersville, there's a small shopping center (with Cactus bllue and a chinese restaurant) with an open spot, since Primo Hoagies moved to Catasauqua Road. Although, as mentioned, there's a Subway in the Westgate Mall (which replaced the former Jay's Subs), but it might be far enough, there is a lot of traffic there with the hospital next door.

I would check out both stip malls on Willam Penn Highway in Pamler Twp! I don't remember seeing one in that area, but I going off of memory there maybe one in the mall or right around the corner.

If there is a Starbucks there, I don't think you can go wrong. I've read a lot about how Starbucks is one of if not the most strict when it comes to placement of their franchises. They do total research in the local demographics and what not before deciding to place a franchise.

Some realtors even say that you can gauge how wealthy the area is based on whether there is a Starbucks close. It sounds strange, but I can understand that they'd need to be careful where they go look for customer to pay $4 for a cup of coffee every day.

Assuming that the customer base for a Starbucks is similar to that of Subways, I think it could be a good location for you. Just my $0.02.

And regarding William Penn Highway, I think there is a Subway in the mall (Weis, Friendly's, Gamestop) at the intersection with Greenwood Ave. The Home Depot mall at 25th St and William Penn has a Starbucks in it (according to the "Starbucks Rule" I stated above ), plus both Easton High Schools are just across and down the street. So that seemed like a good location but that's gotta be like less than 1/2 mile from the existing Subways. I'd be happy to see a Quizno's or Papa Johns there though!
