If You Could Open Any Small Business, What Would It Be?

What small businesses do you want to see move into Lakewood?

With Small Business Saturday here, we recently posed this question on the Lakewood Patch Facebook page: If you could open any small business in town, what would it be and why?

Readers had some great answers.

One reader said she'd like to open a childrens playland and coffeeshop "for mommies and daddies."

Another reader suggested an indoor golf center, but joked only "after ruling out a hair salon/yoga studio/pizza shop. Whle another though that a comedy club/restaurant would work in the old Westwood theater.

If you could open any small business in Lakewood, what would it be? Tell us in the comments!

I'd open a micropublishing company to publish my magazine, ATROCITY PARADE, as well as a quarterly digest containing two or three original novellas and a couple of original graphic novels per issue, as well as a line of greeting cards. It's a bitter shame that funding, or even cooperation from the community, has been 100% impossible to date, because this would keep a LOT of independent-contractor artists in work for a long time to come.

I would open a Lolly The Trolly line (but name it Holly the Trolly instead) to cruise Madison, Detroit shopping and drinking establishments. That way folks could hop on and off to buy drinks and pizzas without getting parking and DUI tickets.
