How about a Dollar General ? the 1 that was located in Marumsco plaza shut down, most of the employee's went to the General Dollar when it was openeded off Liberia in Manassas, all Woodbridge has is Dollar Tree, and family dollar, The Dollar tree In Manassas is Huge , more Items then the Dollar Tree in Woodbridge near potomac mills and off Rt 1 going towards Dumfries, There is a Dollar General in Triangle , but not 1 of my favorites

There are some great suggestions, here! Does anyone know why Van's skate park closed? Was the rent just too expensive? I see so many kids with no place to ride their boards and practice their stunts, but I guess you'd need a two story building for that. It does seem a good spot for some indoor sport activity. I liked the suggestion for a senior center, too, as there is only one in Woodbridge and another in Manassas. Might be handy for the seniors at River Run across the street. (If they could get over there in one piece!)

Connie, According to this WaPo article from 2005, Vans closed at Potomac Mills due to competition from public skate parks. http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/articles/A39801-2004Dec31.html A senior center would be a great suggestion, as it is a *bit* more central to the county.

What a SUPER idea! A sport facility that does not eliminate any age category.
MikeC April 29, 2012 at 02:07 PM
Ditto Trader Joes!

Or west of Winchester, VA for the nearest Sonic. We were supposed to get one in Manassas near Liberia & PW Parkway but some snafu happened.
MikeC April 29, 2012 at 02:10 PM
I agree on an Outdoor World, Gander Mountain or EMS.

I could go with the Trader Joe's idea, that is fine and the alternate choice in foods would definetly cause the other Markets in the area to look at their shelves and compete. I still stand by the Marvel Superhero Store as well as a sort of Chuckie Cheese meets Dave & Busters. By the response of people seeing the Avengers there is a market and place for this. Plus it will bring Children of all Ages and Parents together without excluding anyone. AND YES there are some GIRLS that do read and like COMICS!!! Not as many as Boys but there are some and maybe in the right place with parents we can use this as a vehicle of how we want our children to get together and act RESPONSIBLY having RESPECTFUL FUN.

Theflo, There is a comic book store in Woodbridge called Painted Visions. It's located at 3065 Golansky Boulevard Woodbridge, VA 22192.

I think keeping it at a grocery is great. Bring one of those asian markets in. Fairfax has a ton. The place is so diverse and Global Foods is the one international market, why not have another one. At least something different besides global.

that space should be used for the kids of the community which currently we dont have in this area. A skating rink some type of activity for the kids. we have enough stores in the area. Traffic is bad enough
Tanya May 17, 2012 at 03:15 AM
That's true, but we had a skating rink before but didn't it get closed down?
robin rother May 18, 2012 at 03:53 PM
no way!! i will vomit if i see another dollar store. do you know where they get their products, especially the ones that go in your mouth. look it up they could make you ill or worse. i could go for a full service legal seafood store and resturant, sick of frozen weeks old chain food
Lauren Jost May 18, 2012 at 04:23 PM
Tanya, I'm not up-to-date on a skating rink in that area, or in Woodbridge.
Lakeridge resident June 06, 2012 at 03:43 PM
Dave and Busters would be great! We need more adult/family entertainment places. There are none in the Woodbridge area. Were can you take your whole family and have fun without leaving the state or county?
Tanya August 25, 2012 at 05:34 AM
Agree. Need a Dave and Buster here asap!!!
robin rother August 25, 2012 at 01:41 PM
give me a break> there"s enough dollar stores they sell tainted health products.
robin rother August 25, 2012 at 01:52 PM
dale city is for kids to seniors> unfortunately every retailer here has to pass on their expenses to the citizens. went to a movie matinee for the first time in years with grandchildren and cost nearly $50.00. how is that dale city alliance going?
robin rother August 25, 2012 at 11:57 PM
LEGAL SEAFOOD !!!!
Connie Moser August 26, 2012 at 12:49 PM
For Sherri Wussow...there IS a Sonic coming soon...near Shoppers on the Parkway. Robin Rother you are always welcome to meet with Neabsco Action Alliance. You do not even need to live in the Neabsco District, just have an interest in improving the area. Go to www.nwabscoactionalliance.org
robin rother August 28, 2012 at 01:16 AM
connie, clicked on the neabsco site twice, it's not there. yes of coarse would love to sit in at a meeting, but don't get alerted by dale city patch on date, time or place. give me a facebbok message please.
Kathryn Owen September 23, 2012 at 03:05 AM
Trader Joes!!! Whole Foods would be nice too. I can't believe we don't have an alternative to Wegmans in all of Woodbridge. Other than the little Natural Grocer...

Menards is a homedepot like at much lower prices and bigger variety superstore selling mostly American made products from the Midwest - Wisconsin - that would bring on new business to Woodbridge since there none out here http://www.menards.com/main/mobile/home.html http://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Menards Products Building materials, tools, hardware, garden supplies, electrical supplies, ceiling fans, light fixtures, cabinets, home appliances, doors, windows, paint, wood stain, wallpaper, plumbing supplies, carpet, vinyl, linoleum, groceries, automotive
