When Pastore’s Deli closed in May 2011, many Pasadena residents were disappointed to be losing a local business.
A 7-Eleven recently took up residence in Pastore’s Plaza, the shopping center where Pastore’s Deli once stood. However, an open space still remains next to the 7-Eleven.
Personally, I am still hoping a Starbucks will come to Pasadena, or some other coffee shop with Wi-Fi. When I first took over as editor of Pasadena Patch, a few people told me they thought a second Panera would fill the plaza.
I’m not sure we need a second Panera, and the space now is too small, but a coffee shop might fit in nicely. Do you think another type of deli would succeed in the space?
What business would you like to see fill this vacant business space?
