Visions for Vacancies: Former GameStop Site in Sammamish

GameStop recently vacated a highly visible storefront in the Saffron Center, so we ask you, what would you like to see move in there?

The Saffron Center's corner retail space, highly visible at the busy Inglewood Hill Road and 228th Ave NE intersection, is for lease.

Though it hasn't been long since of the 2,450-square-foot retail space, commercial real estate is at a premium in Sammamish so we wonder what type of business might fill a real Plateau need by taking up residence there.

The Saffron Center is home to a number of businesses, including the popular , and , among others. The space is being marketed by Investco Management Services, with negotiable terms.

So, we ask you, Patch users:

What kind of business or community space would work well in the former GameStop?

I'd love to see a new/used bookstore along the lines of Third Place Books. I like the idea of partnering with the music store - maybe some space for small performances the public could enjoy.

Panera or something would be nice. I agree with Val, it needs to be something "common". I'd go to a Panera once a week if it were there!

You're coming up with great ideas, keep 'em coming and maybe a local business person will be inspired.

Considering the size of the Panera in Redmond, I'm not sure that space is big enough! A Ben and Jerry's ice cream shop? Another Cafe Lladro? Love the idea of an independent bookstore/cafe. What about an art studio like Paint Away in Redmond?
