Do you have any ideas for this vacant Sears Hardware store in Hamden, CT?  It closed several years ago and is about 22,000 square feet.  I think something like Border's, Barnes & Noble or Ocean State Job Lot would be good in this space.

The space is too small for Bradlees.

Add another 60,000 square feet onto it, paint it tan and brown, and open a ShopKo store inside of it. ShopKo is one of only a handful of regional discounters left, and ShopKo just happens to be the largest and strongest of them all. Shopko is reminiscent of all the past regionals, such as Ames, Hills, Jamesway, Zayre, and Bradlees.

I honestly had never even heard of ShopKo until I found this board. I don't have any here. I'm in west PA, and all we have is K-mart and Wal-Mart

I'm sure it's been filled already, but the first thing that sprang to mind was subdividing it into a Five Below (they need around 7500sf for a store) and something else. Maybe a Goodwill/Salvation Army store and a Five Guys?
