What Would You Place Near Publix?

Four storefronts in a New Hope shopping center are awaiting tenants.

What sort of businesses are you hoping for in New Hope?

Vacant spaces in the Dallas shopping center known as the Paradise Shoppes of New Hope are the focus of this week’s edition of “Fill in the Blank,” where we show you a vacant building in Dallas or Hiram, and you tell us what type of establishment you'd like to see move there.

Paradise Shoppes already has a variety of tenants, from  Paulding County Chiropractic and Great Clips to Subway and Pearl China, as well as Publix in the largest space in the center.

What would you like to see join these establishments?

As of Feb. 17, four storefronts of three different sizes are available in the shopping center. Two are 900 square feet while the other two are 1,200 and 2,100 square feet.

A fifth vacant storefront of 3,570 square feet, formerly a Beef O’Brady’s, will soon see another restaurant move in, according to Ryan Holzer, vice president of Atlanta-based Skyline Seven Properties, which is offering the retail space for lease.

See the attached document for more information on the shopping center and its available spaces.

We’ll be using our Fill in the Blank column to report on previously reported empty storefronts should there be news on potential businesses moving in. Let us know if you get wind of any talk of new business coming to town and we’ll look into it—that’s how we heard last year about Academy Sports’ plans to build in Hiram following the closure of the city’s Kroger location.

Lastly, if there are any vacant storefronts or buildings you would like us to explore, let us know in the comments.

I'll always be OK-How about you? February 17, 2012 at 12:42 PM
A gameroom for the kids, for teenagers to play pool, video games, ets, like we had when we where young, an actual game room, where u stayed out of trouble and it wasnt small young kids, just a place to hang out and behave:) for the young drivers that are cruising around with idle minds, an actual safe place to be and have fun with other friends! CLEAN GOOD FUN! WE NEED THAT IN PAULDING FOR OUR CHILDREN TO STAY OFF THE STREETS. Mine are grown now, and it would have been nice to have a place like that, i know i loved the one we had when i was young, it cost $10 to enter 30 yrs ago, but Mother knew it was safe and we had fun with our friends and wasnt allowed to just cruise around in cars all night and day. I think alot of parents would enjoy a safe haven for thier young kids now, in my day it wasnt a big liability, mother had to sign release and had to have all info and u even had an id card to get in, so we went with $30 and had a blast for many yrs. Gave mother a break and she knew we where safe. NOW that would be nothing compared to these gas prices! A kids gameroom club,,,,would be awesome in paulding county!
