There seem to be so many stores and restaurants closing around here lately. I mean, what gives?! It's not like we don't go out, right? I go out all of the time. So what has gone wrong with some of these places?

For them, it's too late. But, honestly, maybe they just weren't what we wanted. There are plenty of businesses, whether chains or locals from other areas that we would love to come here that still haven't moved our way yet.

I polled people on the WGNA Facebook page and here are a list of stores and restaurants that people would love to pop up here locally. Maybe one of these businesses will see this and grant our wishes true! Or even better, maybe someone can create something similar locally!

Please note: We obviously love eating more than shopping...
