Visions for Vacancies: Decathlon

What business would you like to see take over the old Decathlon building on Rte. 1?

Visions for Vacancies: Decathlon

Drive around Norwood and you'll notice far too many empty storefronts and buildings.

This week, we're continuing our "Visions for Vacancies" series where we showcase an empty storefront in town and ask you what should take up the space.

So today we ask you, what should go in at the large empty building on Boston-Providence Highway that used to be Decathlon?

Decathlon USA announced closure of all its operations in September of 2006. Four Massachusetts locations - Bellingham, Burlington, Hanover and Norwood - were all shuttered in the months after the announcement.

What do you think should go in the location? Another sporting warehouse? A department store? A Target or Walmart? Tell us in comments!
