Tropical Smoothie Cafe and one other space that was for lease but haven't heard if it has been filled.   Probably a good spot for a cell phone, tobacco, or pizza place because there aren't any on that side of the street for a few hundred yards.

How about a massage parlor?  Considering the level of corruption in Moron County government, that would be a real barn burner.  Chinese gals giving those 'special massages'.....lol

Another one bites the dust.

I was never terribly impressed, but I guess for Monroe it wasn't too bad.

Don't the owners own the coal fired pizza joint I've never been to as well?

Coal fired pizza just don't sound good to me.....

They do. 

I know pizza made in wood fired brick ovens can be pretty tasty.

Coal?  Yeah - never appealed to me.

Probably do but not getting any revenue from them....  All about revenue after all.  Gotta keep the highly paid advisors paid right.

No, but they keep all the agencies busy administering shots.

No more Ruby Tuesdays in Monroe.

Pretty sad when chain restaurants can't even hang on.

Ruby Tuesday isn't hanging on most places.   Really, most of the chains that have closed in Monroe in the last couple years were corporate failures, not problems specifically with their Monroe location.

I see them building in the Detroit and Ann Arbor Suburbs like mad too.

I am not sure I agree that it is a corporate wide thing.

I'm specifically talking about the chains that have folded in Monroe in the last few years.

Rue21--closed something like half their stores after their first bankruptcy.
RadioShack--closed all non-franchise stores after their second bankruptcy.
Carsons--closed all stores in bankruptcy.
Kmart/Sears--longest corporate failure in history, still continuing their slide into oblivion.
Payless--closing all stores in bankruptcy.
Vitamin World--closed most/all stores in bankruptcy (I think some were sold.)
Pat Catans--entire chain is closing with just a few converting to Michaels.
Rite Aid--sold much of the chain to Walgreens and closing many other stores.
Claires--near bankruptcy, closed many stores.
Aeropostale--bankrupcty, all stores closed, some reopened.
Justice--parent company closed around 650 stores last year.
Vanity--closed all stores in bankruptcy.
Raven Rock Work Wear--closed all stores

Target would be a notable exception.  Ostermans made sense since its the same company as Kay.

I'm not saying Monroe is a strong retail market, but what's happening here with retail is going on in a lot of places.   There's plenty of empty space in malls nationwide and restaurants come and even in the best markets.   Ruby Tuesday closed this week but American Diner opens today and rumor has it Angelo's is really, really close (so maybe only another year or two. :D)

Dolce Vita closed because the food and service was a crapshoot for a few years and the owner was a jerk about it.   He brought in an investor and they tried to fix it but it was too late.   I'm surprised the venture next door has survived because the situation is similar there.   Northside, Public House, and Amayas are all always busy
