Visions for Vacancies: Checkers

The Chews Landing Road fast-food joint closed recently.

The Checkers fast-food restaurant on Chews Landing Road closed its doors recently.

In recent weeks, we've asked our readers with "Visions for Vacancies" to identify the types of businesses they wanted to see in the former Denny's and former Super Fresh locations on Blackwood Clementon Road.

This week, we want you to tell us and your fellow Gloucester Township Patch readers what you'd like to see in the now-vacant Checkers building in the Market Place shopping center.

This one will likely be a bit more tricky than our first two "Visions for Vacancies" features, given the unique size and shape of Checkers buildings.

What do you think?

Another fast-food restaurant?

An electronics store?

A jewelry store?

Maybe you have an "outside the box" idea?

Whatever your thoughts, please share them in the comments section below.

UPDATE, 2:15 p.m. 5/9: It appears several Checkers franchises in the Camden County area have closed down. The Checkers on Cross Keys Road, in the township's Sicklerville section, is among the franchises to have also closed.

One last thing, because I am coming to as bad as you two. Denny's article 4 blowhard comments, of 41 total 9.7%. Superfresh 8 blowhard comments, of 21 total 38%. Checkers 7 blowhard comments, of 17 total(5 of which are mine). 41% or 70.5%, depending on how you look at it. Feeding your egos is so important that you can't see how it isn't rallying people to your cause, but driving away anyone who may have been interested in the topic.

Hold on , I see OTHER towns building . I have talk to people who own bussiness that would love to come to GT and open up shop but the powers to be push up on them in a heart beat and chase them away . Now when them bussiness owners get a CLUE and start speaking out . Look out the system in GT will go down . Come on man we are fighting for a better place for our KIDS and their kids . WAKE UP nobody wants to fight , but things have to change we are losing the FIGHT .......So call me what you want to call me but I'm just a man that cares

Panera Bread would be nice. You have to go to Voorhees or Marlton for the nearest ones.
