Visions for Vacancies: Main Street Hess

TELL US: What would you like to see in the vacant gas station next to Wawa in Reisterstown?

The Hess gas station on Main Street in Reisterstown has been vacant since the summer of 2011. It closed its doors and shut off the pumps months before Wawa opened next door.

With so many nearby gas stations, including the Wawa with its indoor convenience store, the site might not be dispensing gas again in the near future.

What would you like to see in this vacant space? Tell us in the comments.

Is there a commercial vacancy you'd like to discuss? If so be sure to email editor Marc Shapiro (marc.shapiro@patch.com) and maybe it will be featured in the next Visions for Vacancies.

I would like to see a Paneras or Attwaters or maybe an Einstein bagels.

I second a health food store or natural pharmacy. reisterstown needs a health food store!! A store that sold local goods like breads, meats, eggs and cheeses from local farms. Something like the Green Onion in hamilton

I'm fairly certain atleast 1 in 4 if not 2 in 4 people who posted here so far either do not live in Reisterstown or have mental development issues. First someone thinks it's a good idea to build a car wash or a bowling alley? Really? If that's such a great business plan how come the ones in the Reisterstown Shopping center didnt flourish? Car washes are a thing of the past as is bowling. That horrid idea is only out done by the "police substation" idea. Really? You want a police substation not 3 miles away from the POLICE STATION? I sure hope you arent responsible for spending our tax money. My idea.....put in an all glass jail. That way when the idiots do wrong they can be housed there. Their thug friends walking/driving/MTA'ing all over Reisterstown can see the jailed thug friends and that might cut down on crime. Bowling alley? What is this 1950? Not to mention....the lot is really really small.

What is wrong with a bowling alley? Yes that lot is too small, but we need a place for families to go and spend time together. With today's world they don't get to do that too much. And also it would be fun to be in a bowling league again as long as it had duckpins along with ten pins
